A trust deed provided by the prime minister's daughter Maryam Nawaz and executed in 2006 was written in Calibri font which was not commercially available till 2007. It was also notarised from an office in London on Saturday which is officially an off day, raising concern about the authenticity of the document.
Last year, the Panama Papers revealed that three of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's children owned offshore companies and assets not shown on his family's wealth statement. The assets in question include four expensive flats in Park Lane, London.
A Joint Investigation Team (JIT), set up by the Supreme Court to investigate corruption allegations that surfaced following the Panama Papers leak, also accused his children, including heir apparent Maryam Sharif, of signing falsified documents about ownership of off-shore companies.
The Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) accused Maryam Nawaz Sharif of forging documents in two 2006 declarations made by her using the Calibri font which was released to the public in the year 2007. The online community has termed this forgery as 'fontgate'.
Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz will appear tomorrow before the JIT for the first time. The JIT is expected to complete its probe by July 10 and submit a report to the apex Court, which will decide fate of Sharif.
