Action against six tobacco retailers
The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has either revoked or suspended the tobacco retail licences of six errant retailers for selling tobacco products to minors under 18.
The six were caught via ground surveillance and enforcement activities conducted by HSA, it said yesterday.
Song Hui Kiosk in Ang Mo Kio had its licence revoked after it was found to have sold tobacco to a 14-year-old in school uniform. The other retailers – Shivaranjani Minimart, 26 Foodloft, Al Kaaba Mini-Mart, Sin Hup Lee Store and O A Jalil – will be barred from selling tobacco products for six months.
Since 2013, HSA has suspended 32 tobacco retail licences and revoked 22 others.
