FILE In this Monday, Nov. 30, 2009, file photo a portrait of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky who died in jail, is held by his mother Nataliya Magnitskaya, as she speaks during an interview with the AP in Moscow. The Senate is taking up legislation Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, that would end four-decade-old trade restrictions that are blocking U.S. businesses from enjoying the benefits of a more-open Russian market. Russian news agencies say on Thursday that a court in Moscow has found dead lawyer Sergei Magnitsky guilty of tax evasion, concluding an unusual posthumous trial. Magnitsky died in prison of untreated pancreatitis in 2009, months after alleging that organized criminals colluded with corrupt Interior Ministry officials to claim a $230 million tax rebate through illegally obtained subsidiaries of Browder's Hermitage Capital investment company.
