The final witnesses in the defense of suspended Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff testified late on Saturday in her senate impeachment trial, days before a vote that could permanently remove her from power.

Rousseff, 68, is accused of taking illegal state loans to help bridge budget shortfalls and mask the true state of the economy during her 2014 reelection campaign.

The one-time leftist guerrilla, who was imprisoned and tortured under Brazil's military government in the 1970s, says the charges against her are trumped up and amount to a right-wing coup.
