The actress Angelina Jolie offered to act as a honeytrap to capture one of Africa's most notorious war criminals, according to documents leaked from within the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The former prosecutor claimed Jolie had herself suggested she could lure Kony to dinner in a plot to arrest him, the report said.
Moreno Ocampo wanted to embed Jolie, and hopefully Pitt, with US Special Forces close to Kony's stronghold, according to the report.
As the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, which formerly operated in Uganda, Kony is said to have been involved in unspeakable crimes including the abduction and rape of children. He also repeatedly praised Jolie over her directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey", in addition to asking for her assistance on a charity education project. Has the image of the films she made (The Country of blood and honey, Invincible or first they killed my father), Angelina Jolie is a woman of heart who loves to treat the hard subjects and fight for your beliefs.
However, the plan apparently fizzled out, with Jolie eventually not replying to several back-to-back emails from Ocampo. "She is ready. Probably Brad (Pitt, her former husband) will go also".More news: Walmart leaks the Google Home Mini and Pixel 2 XL yet again
Mmhm. According to leaked International Criminal Court emails and documents, the Academy Award victor volunteered to be a central part of a 2012 plot to lure war lord Kony into arrest.
It was thought that their presence would then draw Kony out of his armored compound and enable the U.S. forces to take him into custody.
Moreno Ocampo later added, "It will be great to spend more time with the American troops". There are no other references to the plan in the 40,000 leaked emails, and Jolie has declined to comment. "Can Brad go with you?"
"I don't think I know anybody who doesn't hate Jospeh Kony", Jolie told The Telegraph in 2012.
While Jolie's representatives declined to respond to a Huffington Post request for comment, Ocampo has declared that he is the victim of a "targeted cyber attack" as he's now being questioned over his alleged ties to Libyan businessman Hassan Tatanaki, who worked alongside former dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The Sunday Times reports that despite Moreno Ocampo's hopes that Jolie would get involved in a charity education project, an email that simply read, "Dear Angie, I hope you are well".
