First smoking fine

THE Navarra police in the town of Castejon are believed to have handed out the first fine under Spain?s new smoking laws, which came into effect on January 1. A 39-year-old man from Gandia was briefly detained after local police noticed he was smoking in the non-smoking area of a restaurant. He was arrested, taken before a judge in Tudela and fined 240 euros for ?failing to obey a police order?.
