Angelina Jolie Involved in Plot to Catch Warlord Joseph Kony

The Oscar-winning star and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for refugees sent a reply to Mr Moreno Ocampo that said: "Brad is being supportive". He is still now evading arrest, and is rumored to be hiding out in the disputed territory between Sudan and South Sudan.

Angelina Jolie was revealed to have extended her help to the International Criminal Court in catching Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony. The attorney general had a number of discussions directly with the actress: "Apparently you can go on with the special forces who have been hunting Kony". The documents contain an email describing the role Jolie offered to play in capturing Kony. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie replied.

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".

Both the ICC and Jolie did not commented on the leaked documents.

"Forget other celebrities, she is the one", prosecutor Moreno Ocampo wrote in an e-mail that was leaked by the court to the French Web Site Mediapart and made available to the British newspaper. "I miss you." It went unanswered.

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. In a statement to the Financial Times, however, Moreno Ocampo stated that he is completely innocent of breaking any rules regarding his work with Hassan Tatanaki, and that the Mediapart leak is part of a "targeted cyber attack" to stop him investigating worldwide terrorism.

Working as a Special Rapporteur for the UNHCR, Jolie has a long-standing interest in global human rights cases. The actress and humanitarian campaigner had supported the work of the court, including attending the trial of Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga Dyilo.

In recent years, the Lord's Resistance Army has weakened. 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. 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.

"I don't think I know anybody who doesn't hate Jospeh Kony", Jolie told The Telegraph in 2012.
