With 42 votes in favor, 36 against and three abstentions, the Brazilian Federal Senate removed this Wednesday the former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff

The vote was overseen by the president of the Supreme Federal Court, Ricardo Lewandowski, who presided over the final stage of the impeachment process.

Dilma Rousseff was temporarily suspended from office on last May 12th in order to face an impeachment process for alleged violation of the Fiscal Responsibility Law, a crime that the former president repeatedly claimed she did not commit.
