ISLAMABAD: Maryam Nawaz Sharif took to twitter on Tuesday to snub the Panama Papers discovery by dubbing it trash and those who exposed the same as liars.
Pulitzer Prize winning German journalist associated with International Consortium of Investigative Journalists locked horns with Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday on a social media platform over Panama Leaks.
Premier s daughter took to Twitter to criticise Panama Leaks and branded the content that was published in April 2016 "crap." In another tweet she stated: “Panama Papers were never about corruption. Even the stealers & hackers (read originators) didn’t say it was. Losers in imminent danger 1/2.”However, the journalist whose Twitter bio claims, “broke #panamapapers” , Bastian Obermayer denied Nawaz’s claim and responded. “Sorry to tell you: #panamapapers ARE about #corruption.

The leak named at least 400 incumbent as well as former leaders of countries across the world among others for owning offshore companies.
However, it was asserted by the ICIJ at the time that published content in no way alleges any of the persons of corruption. Whereas, the journalist affiliated with the ‘studied and informed’ publishing of the leak clamed today that it was about corruption.
Maryam Nawaz did point out the stance ICIJ had taken last year as she tweeted:
