In this March 13, 2012 file photo, then Chongqing Communist Party Secretary Bo Xilai attends the closing session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference held at Beijing's Great Hall of the People in China. Now the final chapter in the saga is about to unfold: a closely orchestrated trial, opening Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013 in which the 64-year-old Bo is virtually assured of being convicted of corruption and abuse of power. Bo’s trial will seal the political demise of a charismatic figure who cultivated a following by mobilizing the masses and sending his critics to labor camps. His naked ambition might have led to his fall. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan, File) less
