'i am human': sanna marin defends private life in defiant address

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘I am human’: Sanna Marin defends private life in defiant address” – below is their description.

Finland’s prime minister, Sanna Marin, has given a forceful defence of her work record and her right to a private life following recent criticism she has faced over a leaked video of her partying.

‘I am human … During these dark times, I too need some joy, light and fun,’ Marin said to reporters on Wednesday, adding: ‘All that is irrelevant when we need to build this country stronger.’

The videos, which were leaked last week, showed her dancing exuberantly with friends and drinking at a party at which unsubstantiated reports claimed drugs may have been circulating. The prime minister subsequently volunteered herself for a drugs test, which found no narcotics. Marin said she had taken the test for her ‘own legal protection and to clear up any doubts’
