Hasthag #Calibri started trending on Twitter in Pakistan after it emerged that the documents Maryam Nawaz produced from 2006 to prove innocence of her family were written in Calibri, a font that was made default option on products like PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and WordPad in 2007.
The Joint Investigation Team that probed the allegation of corruption against the Sharif family for two months on Monday submitted its report to the Supreme Court and recommended a case be filed in the National Accountability Court after finding that Sharifs have assets beyond known sources of income.
Reports that the use of Calibri font suggests submissions were fabricated left Twitter in a frenzy.
Here are some reactions from Twitter:-
Haahahah - this is gold. Supposed 'declaration letters' from 2006 typed in Calibri font that didnt even exist till 2007. #TeamTimesNewRoman— Farooq Syed (@frooq) July 10, 2017
Note: Calibri blunder was caught by Robert W. Radley (Forensic Handwriting & Document Examiner) hired by the JIT, not by the JIT itself.— Ali Salman Alvi (@alisalmanalvi) July 11, 2017
The fact that Calibri font didn't exist 10 years ago is more news to me than the actual news implied through this fact. Like seriously wow.— عائشہ (@Ayesha_sal) July 10, 2017
Did someone edit the wiki entry for "Calibri"? It says that it was introduced in 2004.— ST (@shobz) July 10, 2017
Is that true about Calibri's commercial release? Did Pakistan's PM/Family get caught in a lie because of a font they used? Great story.— Shaheryar Mirza (@mirza9) July 10, 2017
