Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin is no stranger to controversies. All the party videos and photos of the beautiful Sanna Marin, who is only 36 years old, have become controversial. These also lead to huge discussions on social media. However, this time Sanna Marin has a serious allegation. The new allegation is that he danced with his friends using banned drugs. This controversy comes after the release of a new video of Sanna Marin. Critics say that Sanna Marin’s actions are not befitting of a prime minister. However, those who support her say that even if she becomes the prime minister, she should not stay away from the pleasures of life. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister himself came forward stating that he has never used drugs and is ready for any test.
Footage of Sanna Marin dancing wildly with friends and Finnish public figures was leaked on Wednesday. The video shows the Prime Minister dancing with a group of women. The prime minister’s dance is in the middle of a crowd of celebrities and politicians in Finland. This video was circulated on social media the other day in the form of the Prime Minister dancing with a kiss. It was then alleged that the party involved cocaine, a banned drug. Along with this, there were also clamors for their resignation. After the video that came out as a social media story went viral, there was widespread criticism against Sanna Marin.
Some media referred to the party group that included Prime Minister Sanna Marin as the Jauhozhengi. It means ‘drug gang’. Finnish media outlet Yleisradio Oy reported that cocaine can be heard in one of the leaked party videos. But the Prime Minister’s supporters on social media say that the word is likely to be jallujengi (the Finnish alcoholic drink jalovina). MP Miko Karna and others had tweeted that it would be better for the Prime Minister to undergo a voluntary drug test as the allegations became more serious.
Sanna Marin told the media that taking up the call, he would submit to a drug test if needed. He has nothing to hide. Never took drugs. Marin said the newly released videos were shot in a private apartment weeks ago and that he spent time with guests at two bars in Helsinki, but that he had not been drinking heavily. The Prime Minister also stated that it was just a night out with friends.
Sanna Marin is the world’s youngest Prime Minister. But this is not the first time that the Prime Minister of Finland has been involved in controversies. Videos of Sanna Marin participating in night clubs and music parties have been leaked before. Sanna Marin, who came to the Nisha Club immediately after her personal staff was confirmed to be infected during the Covid period, was criticized a lot.
