Angelina Jolie 'hatched honeytrap plan to capture warlord'

Angelina Jolie 'hatched honeytrap plan to capture warlord'

The offer was made during email discussions with former ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, who wanted to send the Hollywood actress to the Central African Republic to help track down the notorious Ugandan war criminal.

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

"Forget other celebrities, she is the one", Ocampo wrote in an email referring to Jolie, according to The Sunday Times.

A new report from The Sunday Times, based on 40,000 documents obtained by the French investigative website Mediapart, reveals the Oscar victor agreed to lure Kony out of hiding with the help of then-husband Brad Pitt by traveling to the Central African Republic with a team of US special forces.

Were Brad and Ange in on a mission to capture Kony? The "Maleficent" star after all revealed in 2010 that she would gladly "take down" certain people, like Kony, if given the chance, as pointed out by Us Weekly.

In an email to the prosecutor, Jolie reportedly wrote, "Brad is being supportive".

And according to the report, had the plan come to fruition, she may have worked alongside her then-husband Brad Pitt.

In 2012, Jolie publicly called for Kony's arrest, describing Kony as "an extraordinarily frightful human being". Ocampo emailed Clooney "asking for help investigating atrocities committed by Colonel Muammar Gadaffi's regime in Libya during the 2011 civil war", the Sunday Times reported.

He said in one exchange to "invite Kony to dinner and then arrest him", implying Ms Jolie volunteered to be some sort of bait USA forces could use.

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. "I miss you." It went unanswered.

Neither the ICC nor Jolie's reps responded to PEOPLE's requests for comment.

And when Moreno Ocampo invited Sean Penn to a United Nations Security Council meeting regarding Sudan and mentioned that he was trying to decide if he should launch an investigation of Palestine, the longtime humanitarian reportedly replied, "While you make the decision on Palestine, I'm embroiled in a decision of weather [sic] or not to go to get a steam in the hotel spa".
