ekathimerini.com | A year on, smoking ban still flouted:

Of the 27,260 complaints reporting offenses in bars and restaurants, nearly half (12,502) were prompted by patrons smoking on the premises. Another 8,692 complaints were about the existence of ashtrays on the tables while 5,414 callers called to report bar or restaurant owners for allowing smoking in their establishments.
Complaints were also made about the illegal segregation of cafes and restaurants into smoking and non-smoking areas.
KEEL reported receiving 366 calls regarding smoking in state hospitals and another 288 about teachers smoking at school.

How's that working out for you Greece?
