Justice Christopher Weeramantry is a former judge of the International Court of Justice and the senior-most retired judge in Sri Lanka. His campaign against the nuclear weapon is legendary, famously in a dissenting judgement during his tenure at the ICJ, as well for respecting the environment. Taking inspiration from his elders and borrowing from the wisdom of world religions, he has been spreading his message of peace for decades. Photography by Kannan Arunasalam.
