Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif ‘s daughter Maryam took to Twitter yesterday to call the Panama Papers “crap”, two weeks after her father managed to escape conviction for being named among those with offshore tax havens.
However, two of the reporters who were involved in breaking the story last year decided to respond and tell Maryam Nawaz Sharif what journalism is about and how consequential the details revealed in the Papers have been.
Panama is crap. Trashed in the rest of the world. Those relying on it to bring down NS wil bite the dust Insha’Allah https://t.co/j17LCdlfvV
Maryam Nawaz Sharif not only called the investgation “crap” she went on an extended rant saying that the Papers has been “trashed in the rest of the world” and were intended to “bring down” her father.
Panama papers were never about corruption. Even the stealers & hackers (read originators) didn’t say it was. Losers in imminent danger 1/2
“I don’t know why she tweeted what she tweeted, looks like party politics,” he told Dawn. His response, he said, was “generally about the Panama Papers”.
“To my best knowledge, no other head of state has challenged [their] veracity… not even Vladimir Putin, whose best friend we found in the centre of a number of offshore companies,” the German journalist said.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s tweetstorm both annoyed and amused opposition politicians. Sherry Rehman of the Pakistan People’s Party tweeted:
