Former Justice of Supreme Court of Sri Lanka and International Court of Justice C.G. Weeramantry yesterday emphasized the need of having a sound peace education system for building peace and reconciliation among the different communities after the end of three decades war in the North and the East.
He was of the opinion that peace education will impart a war-torn generation some of the conceptual, psychological and religious perspectives which will give inspiration and hopes to children who have known nothing but war.
Justice Weeramantry was giving evidence before the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Centre in Colombo yesterday.
Weeramantry added that all segments of society beginning from school students should receive comprehensive peace education to restore harmony and good-will in the country.
