Calibri font used to identify allegedly forged document

Post by martin » 2017-07-18 12:47:37

A recent corruption probe in Pakistan identified forged documents because they used Microsoft's Calibri font. Here's what the forensic investigator said:
I have identified the type font used to produce both certified Declarations as 'Calibri'. However, Calibri was not commercially available before 31st January 2007 and as such, neither of the originals of the certified Declarations is correctly dated and have to have been created at some later point in time.
Leaving aside the politics, it's pretty neat that a font was used in this way.
