The new weather front, featuring barometric lows, currently located west of Sardinia, Italy, will slowly move eastward during the day.

Greece to increase the fines for smoking in public places

The government of Greece is working toward increasing the fines people would have to pay when violating the new, wide-ranging anti-smoking laws.

According to the Greek Ministry of Health, the public smoking fines which were introduced in 2009 are currently too low in some cases. For this reason, the Greek government will publish a new list of increased fines by 19 November.  That will be the first day on which the new law will be officially enforced.
