Brazil’s former finance minister Nelson Henrique Barbosa has defended Dilma Rousseff, the suspended president, as her impeachment trial continues.
Rousseff, who is accused of illegally manipulating government accounts to hide the size of the budget deficit, prepares to testify on Monday.
Her trial has caused deep divisions in the country.
