Greek Minister Caught Taking A Puff Tells EU Official to Butt Out
According to Reuters, Greece’s deputy health minister has told the European Union’s top health official to butt out after getting a reprimand for smoking in public.
Deputy minister Pavlos Polakis was caught on video footage this week holding a cigarette while dancing in a club.
He had also been photographed smoking at a news conference in 2016.
It drew a rebuke from EU Health Commissioner, who was in Athens to mark World Cancer Day, calling the practice of smoking "shameful”.
