  • It was hoped that Jolie could be embedded with forces close to Kony left

A plan unveiled by Luis Moreno Ocampo, chief prosecutor of the ICC, in an e-mail, who is among the 40,000 documents that have been leaked on Mediapart. On his side, Angelina Jolie confirms her motivation: " Brad argues. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie reportedly told him. European media outlets have detailed how the Hollywood A-lister planned to work with the International Criminal Court to bring Joseph Kony to justice.

A PROSECUTOR wanted Angelina Jolie to take part in a honeytrap to snare one of Africa's most wanted warlords, according to leaked documents. So she reportedly offered herself as a honeypot. "Forget other celebrities, she is the one", he wrote. "She is ready. Probably Brad (Pitt) will go also".

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.

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. Moreno Ocampo ended his term at the head of the ICC in 2012, so the plot was hatched before then.

Harvey Weinstein fired from his Company following Sexual Harassment Claims
Weinstein is one of the most influential producers in Hollywood and has produced hundreds of popular movies over the years. Weinstein's alleged inappropriate behavior with women in the last 30 years was detailed in the bombshell report.


However, it never came to be. Moreno Ocampo wrote in an email to Jolie, per the Times.

But the details were remarkable. "I miss you." It went unanswered.

Jolie - a UNHCR Special envoy for refugees - is a staunch campaigner for the end to sexual violence in conflict, and established thePreventing Sexual Violence Initiative with British politician William Hague five years ago.

Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army movement had been fighting then to install a government in Uganda, and have waged war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic for more than 20 years, the BBC News said. The Ugandan rebel leader is wanted for his war crimes that resulted in the deaths of 100,000 people and displacement of two million locals from their homes. He became famous to westerners in 2012 through a viral video called "Kony 2012."
