The Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has accused Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Maryam, of presenting fake documents on two 2006 declarations to the probe team using the “Calibri” font, which was not commercially available until January 30, 2007.

The JIT, which is probing allegations of money laundering against Sharif and his family, said Maryam, her brothers, Hussain and Hassan, and her husband, Captain Mohammad Safdar (retd), had signed false documents to mislead the Supreme Court.

The team that probed offshore assets of Sharif family said in its report that Maryam claimed herself to be “trustee not the owner” of Avenfield properties in London, which linked her to Minerva Services and Samba Financial, Geo News reported.

The JIT said that her claim turned out to be completely wrong and it was proved that she owned the properties managed by Minerva Services. The JIT concluded that Sharif’s daughter was the real and ultimate beneficiary of the Avenfield apartments.

It said that the font used in documents submitted by Maryam suggested that the 2006 declarations were fake and called it a federal crime, said a report in the Express Tribune.

Maryam was also accused of accumulating “assets disproportionate and beyond means of known sources of income”, Dawn newspaper reported.

The JIT’s report said: “She had been receiving heavy gifts from Rs73.5 million (Dh2.5 million) to Rs830.73 million within [the] period of 2009-2016.”

It said that the “accumulation of Maryam’s assets shows a drastic hike in the early 1990s with no declared source of income”.

Soon after the “font” portion of JIT report went viral, online trolls went after Maryam.

“I already thought Calibri was the greatest font ever but I never imagined it would achieve legend status,” one Twitter user said.

“Calibri font invented by our daughter Maryam Nawaz in Arfa Kareem tower Lahore: Shahbaz Sharif,” wrote another user.
