A new report in The Sunday Times, based on the 40,000 ICC documents, said that Jolie was in touch with the ICC chief prosecutor at the time, Luis Moreno Ocampo.
In one email sent by Moreno Ocampo, leaked to the French investigative website Mediapart and seen by The Sunday Times, he claims that Jolie "has the idea to invite Kony to dinner and then arrest him".
Jolie actually contemplated the idea that she and then-parter Brad Pitt could travel with a team of US special forces to the Central African Republic, according to leaked International Criminal Court documents that were detailed by The Sunday Times. Despite increased media attention from a viral documentary about Kony in 2012, he continues to evade capture. Jolie was one of many horrified by Kony's actions, and was willing to use her celebrity to put an end to his despicable acts. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx". Ocampo's plan was to have Pitt and Jolie meet with Kony for a dinner date, and wanted Pitt and Jolie embedded with US Special Forces in Uganda. As head of the Lord's Resistance Army, Kony has a $5 million bounty on his head and is wanted by the global criminal court for crimes against humanity. "Probably Brad [Pitt] will go also", Ocampo wrote.
In a 2012 video, Jolie, who is a United Nations Special Envoy, called for Kony's arrest. She had gone to the ICC at The Hague, Netherlands to watch him prosecute Thomas Lubanga of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the first person to ever be convicted by the court. Can Brad go with you?' 'She loves to arrest Kony.
Moreno Ocampo later added, "It will be great to spend more time with the American troops". The documents contain an email describing the role Jolie offered to play in capturing Kony. Unfortunately, the unlikely team's plans never came to fruition, though Moreno Ocampo could still pursue his calling as a Hollywood screenwriter.
Both the ICC and Jolie did not commented on the leaked documents.
"I don't think I know anybody who doesn't hate Jospeh Kony", Jolie told The Telegraph in 2012.
The Sunday Times of London said Luis Moreno Ocampo also tried to recruit film stars George Clooney and Sean Penn in his global crusades.
