How a Microsoft font may bring down Pakistan’s Nawaz Sharif govt

8fff8NEW DELHI: The undoing of Pakistan’s Nawaz Sharif government might be a Microsoft Word font the PM’s daughter Maryam used while allegedly forging documents she submitted to a team investigating illegal offshore properties flagged in the Panama Papers, the country’s. Pakistan’s Twitterati is having a field day with that bit of information, calling it Fontgate. On page-55 of the investigative team’s final report submitted, it says 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. Still, the report noted that Wikipedia says the Calibri font was made much before 2007, in 2004. However, it was made available for public use in 2007. And full marks to this person who had the foresight to predict this hashtag.
