The undoing of Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan might be due to a Microsoft Word font, which was used by PM Sharif’s daughter Maryam while allegedly forging some documents and later submittig them to a team investigating illegal offshore properties flagged in the Panama Papers, the country’s media reported.

According to a Times of India report, on page-55 of the investigative team’s final report, it says that Maryam’s documents had on them sentences typed in the “Calibri” font which was not available before January 31, 2007. The documents themselves, though, were from 2006.

According to the Wikipedia, the Calibri font was made much before 2007, in 2004. However, it was made available for public use in 2007.

Pakistan’s Twitterati is having a field day with that bit of information, calling it #Fontgate.

Here’s how they reacted to the news:


Maryam is also accused of accumulating “assets disproportionate and beyond means of known sources of income”, Dawn newspaper reported on Tuesday. The JIT’s report said, “She (Maryam) had been receiving heavy gifts from Rs 73.5 million to Rs 830.73 million within period of 2009-2016.”
