‘Minimal indications’ of wrongdoing exist to put Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff on trial for corruption, according to a report by Congressman Jovair Arantes.

His statement to the lower-house committee investigating the leader increases the likelihood she will be impeached.

The 65-member body will vote on the findings of Arantes’ report on Monday (April 11).

Brazil’s first female president is accused of manipulating government funds to boost her 2014 bid for re-election. Arantes claims to have found evidence she bypassed certain fiscal responsibility rules.

Rousseff denies any wrongdoing and maintains she will not step down.
