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

Luis Moreno Ocampo the former chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court wanted to use Jolie as bait in a'honeytrap and have Pitt be her'co-star

Newly leaked International Criminal Court emails and documents reportedly show that the Academy Award victor - who has played spies and action stars onscreen many times - volunteered to be a central part of a plot in 2012 to lure Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony into an arrest. Emails obtained by French website Mediapart reportedly show that the American actress once offered to help authorities capture African warlord Joseph Kony by inviting him to dinner.

Moreno Ocampo was hoping to get Jolie and her now-estranged husband Brad Pitt embedded in Uganda with U.S. special forces troops close to the warlord's stronghold, where hundreds of children have been abducted.

However, this year the US military ended its mission to capture Kony, as his army had diminished to only about 100 soldiers, according to The New York Times.

The plan, hatched sometime in 2012, was for Jolie to invite Kony to dinner.

Jolie, 42, apparently replied to Mr Moreno Ocampo at one point saying: 'Brad is being supportive.

Kony is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal and is suspected of abducting thousands of children and turning them into fighters and sex slaves, the BBC said. "She is ready. Probably Brad [Pitt] will go also", he said in another email. In a 2010 interview with Nightline, she admitted that she would be tempted to "take down" Kony if she were ever face to face with him.

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

"She loves to arrest Kony".

Moreno Ocampo, who won just one ICC case in nine years, also reportedly recruited George Clooney and Sean Penn for other cases. Can Brad go with you?'

Luis Moreno Ocampo and his successor Fatou Bensouda at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, June 2012.

In the wake of the leak, Ocampo claims 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.

I guess we'll never know if Brange could have captured Kony or not. He wrote in another email, "Dear Angie, I hope you are well".
