K.H. v. Y.İ.
A business violated Turkey’s law, which prohibits the use of tobacco products in indoor areas such as shopping centers. In addressing whether employees of a business unreasonably obstructed health officials from enforcing the smoking law, the court noted that the business did not qualify for any of the law’s exemptions even though it had a stand-alone ventilation system. As for the criminal violations, the court found that the business owner was not criminally liable and postponed its decision regarding the other two defendants: an employee and a patron of the business.
