Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has undergone a drug test, she announced on Friday.
Marin had been caught up in a media storm after images surfaced on social media of a party she attended. The result of the drug test is expected in about a week.
“I have never taken drugs in my life,” the Social Democratic politician told journalists on Friday. “I really wish people would not make claims like this when there’s no evidence.”
On Thursday, a video was circulated through social networking sites in which the 36-year-old head of government could be seen celebrating, dancing and singing with friends. Some Finnish journalists claimed to have heard statements about drugs in the video.
Marin says she only drank alcohol that night and that she has no knowledge of anyone present who allegedly used drugs.
