Jolie was in correspondence with the ICC chief prosecutor at the time, Luis Moreno Ocampo, who reportedly developed a fascination with the actress over a period of time from 2003 and 2012.

In a 2012 video, Jolie, who is a United Nations Special Envoy, called for Kony's arrest. 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.

Once Kony arrived for their dinner date, he would be taken into custody by the special forces and whisked away to Europe to be tried for war crimes by the court in The Hague. In another correspondence, Ocampo asked Jolie if Pitt was going with her. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie replied.

Mmhm. According to leaked International Criminal Court emails and documents, the Academy Award victor volunteered to be a central part of a 2012 plot to lure war lord Kony into arrest. Ocampo wrote that Jolie "has the idea to invite Kony to dinner and then arrest him".

Moreno Ocampo later added, "It will be great to spend more time with the American troops. Can Brad go with you?"

It's safe to say that Jolie and Ocampo's plan never came to anything, because Kony is still at large. There are no other references to the plan in the 40,000 leaked emails, and Jolie has declined to comment. Ocampo emailed Clooney "asking for help investigating atrocities committed by Colonel Muammar Gadaffi's regime in Libya during the 2011 civil war", the Sunday Times reported.

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. "I miss you", receiving no response from Jolie.

Mr Moreno Ocampo claimed in a statement to the Financial Times that: "Someone is attempting to blackmail me using illegally obtained information". The actress and humanitarian campaigner had supported the work of the court, including attending the trial of Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga Dyilo. He also repeatedly praised Jolie over her directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey", in addition to asking for her assistance on a charity education project.
