Impeachment Proceedings Against Dilma

Thursday, 03 December 2015

Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff faces impeachment, an unprecedented event in that country and perhaps Latin America. A summary: “Eduardo Cunha, speaker of Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies, approved the launching of the impeachment proceedings. The process will examine Rousseff’s possible connection to a huge corruption scandal at the state-controlled oil company Petrobras and the decision by Petrobras to buy an overpriced oil refinery in Pasadena, Tex., in 2006 when Rousseff was the company’s board chairwoman, officials said. More seriously, the proceedings will focus on allegations that she broke the law through irregularities in the government’s accounting and spending.”
