Maryam Nawaz Sharif raised a furore on Twitter over calling Panama papers ‘crap ‘ and saying it had been trashed in the rest of the world.
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 (@MaryamNSharif) May 2, 2017
The prime minister’s daughter went on to say that those relying on the papers to bring down Nawaz Sharif would bite the dust.
To add insult to the injury Mayram said the Panama Papers were never about corruption.
“Even the stealers and hackers (read originators) didn't say it was. Losers in imminent danger of being swept away in 2018 pounced upon the conspiracy hatched by evil minds.”
