Angelina Jolie 'volunteered' to snare warlord Joseph Kony in dinner honeytrap

Our colleagues have returned to exchange mail between Luis Moreno Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the Court criminal worldwide, and the hollywood star.

The former prosecutor claimed Jolie had herself suggested she could lure Kony to dinner in a plot to arrest him, the report said.

According to the newspaper, Mr Moreno Ocampo was hopeful that the couple would travel with USA special forces to Central African Republic and that would draw Kony out of an armoured compound, allowing for his capture. Despite increased media attention from a viral documentary about Kony in 2012, he continues to evade capture. Why Jolie and Pitt withdrew from the effort to set a trap for Kony is unclear from the leaked email release. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love".

She's become as well-known for her humanitarian work as she has for her movies, but was Angelina Jolie part of a plan to help catch a notorious warlord? "Can Brad [Pitt] go with you?" The american NGO Invisible Children has sought advice from the prosecutor, who responded that he had to hang in contact with Angelina Jolie: " She would like to invite Kony to dinner, and to stop it ".

It was thought that their presence would then draw Kony out of his armored compound and enable the United States forces to take him into custody. Can Brad go with you?' In another missive, he wrote, "Forget other celebrities, she is the one.She loves to arrest Kony".

Luis Moreno Ocampo and his successor Fatou Bensouda at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, June 2012. "They are eager to get Kony, but after meeting you, they will do it", there was no further discussion of the plan, which appears to have never come to fruition.

Other leaked ICC documents show that Jolie was not the only celebrity Moreno Ocampo attempted to persuade to join the worldwide justice organization's efforts against genocide and human rights violations.

Moreno Ocampo, who won just one ICC case in nine years, also reportedly recruited George Clooney and Sean Penn for other cases.

"I don't think I know anybody who doesn't hate Jospeh Kony", Jolie told The Telegraph in 2012.
