    FILE - This undated black and white file photo shows Adolf Hitler's secretary Martin Bormann. Even though Sergei Magnitsky died more than three years ago, he is to go on trial next month in a Russian court. The whistleblowing lawyer died in jail in 2009 after being arrested on charges of tax fraud -- the same fraud in which he alleged Interior Ministry officials had a hand. The plan to bring a dead man to trial adds to the harsh international criticism heaped on Russia over the matter. The court proceedings set to start Feb. 18, 2013 echo some other posthumous trials. Martin Bormann, , the personal secretary to Adolf Hitler, was tried in absentia at the Nuremberg tribunal and sentenced to death _ which in the end proved to be superfluous. At the time of the 1946 trial, the whereabouts of the powerful Nazi official were unknown _ and for decades after the war he was considered one of the most-wanted Nazi war criminals. In 1972 during construction work in downtown Berlin bones were unearthed that were identified as having belonged to Bormann through dental records _ and the location fit with an account that Bormann had committed suicide to avoid falling into enemy hands as he attempted to flee Berlin in the final days of the war in May 1945. But rumors persisted that Bormann had found his way to South America, until DNA tests done in 1998 conclusively proved that the remains found in Berlin were those of Bormann. (AP Photo/File)

    FILE - This Wednesday Sept. 3, 2008 file photo shows the statue of Oliver Cromwell during a ceremony to mark the 350th anniversary of his death as Lord Protector of England in 1658, outside the Palace of Westminster, in central London. Even though Sergei Magnitsky died more than three years ago, he is to go on trial next month in a Russian court. The whistleblowing lawyer died in jail in 2009 after being arrested on charges of tax fraud -- the same fraud in which he alleged Interior Ministry officials had a hand. The plan to bring a dead man to trial adds to the harsh international criticism heaped on Russia over the matter. The court proceedings set to start Feb. 18, 2013 echo some other posthumous trials, such as the case of Oliver Cromwell. As a towering figure in 17th century England, Cromwell attracted wide enmity -- signing the death warrant for King Charles I, taking harsh measures against Catholics and demonstrating brutal military brilliance. The resentment was such that although he never faced trial dead or alive, he did suffer posthumous execution. In 1661, after royalists returned to power, Cromwell’s corpse was exhumed, decapitated and the head displayed on a pole for years thereafter. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis, Pool, File)

    FILE - In this Jan. 8, 2013 file photo, Illinois state Rep. Edward J. Acevedo, D-Chicago, celebrates as the House passes legislation allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses during session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign the legislation on Sunday, Jan. 27. as Illinois becomes the fourth and most populous state to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, the initiative is still nagged by concerns it has enough safeguards to avoid the identity fraud and other pitfalls faced by the three other states with similar laws.
