Documents published by the website Mediapart, and repeated by People, reveal that the actor had proposed to serve as bait to help the global criminal Court (ICC) to capture Joseph Kony, a warlord in uganda, sought after by this same court for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
According to the newspaper, Mr Moreno Ocampo was hopeful that the couple would travel with U.S. special forces to Central African Republic and that would draw Kony out of an armoured compound, allowing for his capture. Kony went viral back in 2012 after an overwrought video about his crimes inspired a lot of people to buy merch that said #Kony2012 on it, but that did not quite capture or stop him. 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. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx".
"Brad is being supportive", she replied.
Kony, the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, was indicted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity in 2005. "She is ready. Probably Brad [Pitt] will go also", he said in another email. The activist actress would act as bait to help take Kony into custody in the Central African Republic, where he was based.
While she's regularly been seen doing work for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), RadarOnline report the 42-year-old and estranged husband Brad Pitt were part of a ploy to try and "honeytrap" African warlord Joseph Kony. Is it that Brad will go with you?
Former 49ers QB YA Tittle passes away at age 90
Tittle never won a championship but was shown in an iconic photo taken by Dozier Mobley during his final season in 1964. Some on Twitter commented on Tittle's greatness and suggested he was disheartened by the current Giants' dismal season.
According to The Sunday Times, the plan never came to fruition, and Moreno Ocampo says the Mediapart leak is part of a "targeted cyber attack". There are no other references to the plan in the 40,000 leaked emails, and Jolie has declined to comment.
Ocampo reportedly also reached out to George Clooney and Sean Penn with this idea. The documents contain an email describing the role Jolie offered to play in capturing Kony.
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.
You'll get him next time, Angie! "I miss you", receiving no response from Jolie.
