Enforcement Authorities

Authorized Agency
Duty to Enforce



Article 19 of Law No. 15 authorizes the Minister of Justice with the agreement of the Ministry of Health and in coordination with the competent authority to issue a resolution listing employees who shall hold the capacity of judicial officers in order to prove violations Law No. 15 and related regulations and executive decisions. It is unclear whether the Minister has issued this resolution.

To align with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, the law should clearly designate an enforcement agency and impose a duty to enforce upon that agency.
