The revised “Law on Hygiene” took effect from yesterday, 29th February. Its predecessor, the “Law on Sanitation” was approved by Parliament on 7th May 1998. Since then, the law project has been changed five times and is now called the “Law on Hygiene”. One of the most noticeable items of the new law is that people caught spitting in the streets will be fined between MNT 5,000-1,000,000. The observance of this provision will be in force very quickly. Policemen, public co-operation activists and voluntary workers will be responsible for controlling its implementation.
