• Brazil’s President makes final plea to impeachment committee


    BRASÍLIA: Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s top lawyer will present final arguments before an impeachment committee Monday at the start of a crucial two weeks in the embattled leader’s bid to stay in power. Solicitor General Jose Eduardo Cardozo was due to face the cross-party committee for the last time before it votes on whether to recommend Rousseff face trial for allegedly illegal accounting practices. The commission recommendation, scheduled for April 11, is non-binding but will set the tone for a vote soon after in the lower house of Congress on Rousseff’s fate.
