"A court in Colombia has recently been working to uncover the dread secrets of
a long and bloody civil war. But rather than identifying perpetrators for death
or imprisonment, it seeks reconciliation of the estranged and restoration of a
torn social fabric.
Like many similar processes around the world over recent decades, this Special
Jurisdiction for Peace was inspired by the most prominent such court, South
Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, headed by Desmond Tutu.
This last public role for the Anglican archbishop embodied what made him the
most influential figure of the new South Africa after Nelson Mandela, and a
world religious leader comparable only to Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama and
Pope John Paul II in recent times."
