MOSCOW (Sputnik) — TeleSUR said Monday that Senate's analysts prepared a report, showing that Roussef did not participate in the fiscal wrongdoing directly and could not bear personal responsibility.
Despite the report, Brazilian lawmakers would gather to find out whether the impeachment should be confirmed on August 9, according to the media outlet.
In May, the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to start impeachment proceedings against Rousseff after she was accused of concealing the country’s budget deficit ahead of the 2014 re-election. Rousseff regards the impeachment proceedings as a coup attempt.
Roussef has been suspended from office for 180 days, pending trial. Vice President Michel Temer is assuming presidency during that period.
