BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s Attorney General Luis Inacio Adams said on Friday he was concerned over the legality of the ongoing impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff.

Adams said the Supreme Court should rule next week, before its recess, on the validity of a secret ballot that stacked a Congressional committee due to hear the impeachment proceedings with Rousseff’s opponents.
