Angelina Jolie willing to act as bait to catch Joseph Kony
Oct 10, 2017, 00:30
The actress and human rights activist, 42, and her now estranged husband Brad Pitt, 53, were asked by International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo to help trap Kony, according to documents obtained by the Britain's The Sunday Times newspaper. The emails also reportedly show that ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who was involved in hatching the plot with Jolie, also tried to recruit Hollywood stars George Clooney and Sean Pennin the effort to lure the elusive Kony out of hiding.
Ocampo stood behind the sincerity of Jolie's offer, claiming in another email: "Forget other celebrities, she is the one".
Other details uncovered in the documents revealed that Jolie had hoped for her and Pitt to travel to the Central African Republic with assistance from the U.S. Special Forces.
Kony, the leader of Lord's Resistance Army, was accused in 2005 of kidnapping and conscripting approximately 30,000 children as soldiers and sex slaves and has evaded capture since then.
Moreno Ocampo later added, "It will be great to spend moretime with the American troops. I miss you." It went unanswered.
I guess we'll never know if Brange could have captured Kony or not.
Mr Moreno Ocampo approached Jolie in the spring of 2012.
The Argentine lawyer is now at the center of a row over his connections to Libyan businessman Hassan Tatanaki, who was closely tied to the brutal regime of former dictator Col. Muammer Gaddafi. Moreno Ocampo thought there was a chance that Jolie's presence would draw Kony into a vulnerable position, where special forces could capture him and bring him to trial for crimes against humanity.
