Meet the member of Parliament who never thought she would face three criminal charges for sharing her beliefs in public.

Päivi Räsänen was shocked to learn that she was accused of “hate speech” for publicly voicing her deeply held beliefs on marriage and human sexuality.

She now faces a daunting trial on 24 January for having published a pamphlet on marriage in 2004, for taking part in a discussion on a radio show in 2019, and for tweeting a picture of a bible passage.

Bishop Pohjola stands trial alongside Päivi for publishing the 2004 pamphlet.
