Rousseff judgement hearings to start on Aug 25
The final judgement phase in the impeachment of suspended president Dilma Rousseff will start on August 25, just four days after the Rio Olympics end. “The judgement session for Dilma Rousseff will start on the 25th. The notice has been delivered to Jose Eduardo Cardozo, the suspended president’s lawyer,” the Senate news service said. Ms Rousseff is accused of breaking budget laws in taking unauthorised government loans to mask the depth of economic difficulties during her 2014 re-election.
