Brazil Supreme Court approves probe on suspended president Dilma Rousseff
17 Aug 2016

Brazil’s top court has authorised a probe into President Dilma Rousseff and her predecessor Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva for allegedly attempting to obstruct the work of investigators into allegations of corruption.

GloboNews reported that Supreme Court Justice Teoru Zavascki gave permission to prosecutor general Rodrigo Janot to look for more evidence that it was Rousseff who sought to name Lula to a cabinet post. It was reported that Lula was anyway on the verge of taking a position in the cabinet in a bid to avoid prosecution before an ordinary court.
