Sharif said that he had a public mandate to serve as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for a full five-year term, and this was so because the people firmly believed in his development-oriented policies.

Based on a report submitted by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the Pakistan Supreme Court has ordered a criminal case against the Chairman of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).

He said there were many lacuanas in the report and the same would be highlighted before the court.

However, the investigation of the JIT now proves that Maryam Nawaz Sharif lied in her statement and she actually is the beneficial owner of both Nescol and Nielson.

JIT chief Wajid Zia presented the report along with evidence to a three-member special bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan.

"Significant gap/disparity among the known and declared sources of income and the wealth accumulated by the Respondent No. 1, 6, 7 and 8 have been observed", said the investigation team in its closing remarks, reports the News.

The liberation of the city has come at a heavy cost for the local population, with the terrorists known to have used civilians as human shields.

Speaking at the press conference, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said the JIT mostly relied on what was said by Rehman Malik, former interior minister and a senior leader of the Pakistan People's Party.

The report said the role of off-shore companies is critical as they have been identified to be linked with their businesses in UK.

The opposition seized on the allegations, however, with cricket legend-turned-opposition leader Imran Khan calling on Sharif to "immediately step down".

He claimed that JIT members were biased, which was against the principles of justice. "We hope the Supreme Court bench will send this report into the trash bin ... to where it rightfully belongs", he concluded. From day one this was also the demand of PTI, the petitioner in Panama Papers case, that proceedings of the JIT be kept open. Several assets have raised eyebrows which include four flats that cost million pounds in Park Lane, London, United Kingdom.

The probe body also recommended the court that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should initiate inquiry against PM and his two sons as well as Maryam Nawaz. They appeared once before the JIT.
