The name Sergei Magnitsky has become synonymous with the fight against corruption in Russia.

The death of the lawyer while in custody more than three years ago also sparked a diplomatic dispute with the US.

Prosecutors now want to try Magnitsky posthumously on charges of tax evasion.

Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports from Moscow.
