There is a proposal 'that Dreyfus's remains be laid alongside those of Zola in the Panthéon, the final resting place of French Republican heroes. Any decision would have to be made by President Jacques Chirac...' (The New York Times, July 7, 2006; link, but you will probably now run into a subscription wall). I understand, from French radio on 12 Jul, the centenary of Alfred Dreyfus's acquittal by France's Supreme Court, that he is not likely to be 'panthéonized', since that is reserved for heroes, not victims.

Belarus opposition leader jailed  …’Alexander Kozulin, one of two opposition candidates to run against [President Alexander] Lukashenko, was jailed for five and a half years at a court in Minsk. He was convicted of hooliganism and incitement to mass disorder.’
