Dear A.S.S. Editor
Two restaurants in Arab Street were fined a total of $12,300 for selling shisha without a licence, reported HSA. They were caught selling the shishas 7 separate times
Nasrin Restaurant located at 58 Arab Street was fined $10,500, while Sufi Corner, located at 56 Arab Street, was fined $1,800. Both restaurants are owned by Rupesh Kumar Singh. The two restaurants already had their tobacco selling licence revoked in 2014 for offences relating to tobacco. The two companies, however, continued to sell shishas from September 2014 to November 2014.
HSA reiterated in their statement that the consuming of shishas is a dangerous activity, and carries more risks than a normal cigarette.
