Brazil court gives another 15 days for Rousseff to explain accounts| Reuters

BRASILIA Brazil's highest accounting court gave another 15 days for President Dilma Rousseff to respond to accusations she doctored the government accounts last year to hide the deterioration of the country's finances.

Rousseff had already been granted 15 days on Aug 12 to respond to new findings made by court officials #Business #United States #Brazil #France #science #opinion
