I'll bet that a ruling, compassionate super-intelligence will
add circuitry to the perp that allows her to experience extreme
remorse for her actions. In that way she can be rehabilitated.

I have to admit that for the previous question, I was thinking of
the "Stalin Problem", namely what to do with Mr. Stalin if Fyodorov's
vision comes true. In that scenario, of course the FAI will have
access to all information too, and moreover, will be the agency
directly responsible for the resurrection.

But your last question is a very good one, and I don't have an
answer for it.
