Constitutional Court upholds smoking ban in restaurant


The Constitutional Court has called for minor modifications to the anti-smoking law introduced in the Czech Republic in June 2016.

The court scrapped a provision banning the sale of alcohol to those who might likely injure themselves and the sale of alcohol and tobacco at events aimed at children.

The main aspects of the ban remain in force, including a total ban on smoking in restaurants and other public places. The court was called to deal with the matter by a group of senators, led by Marek Benda of the Civic Democrats.
