Sharif in a statement after meeting his cabinet in the Pakistani capital Islamabad on Thursday described the probe as "slander".

While briefing the cabinet, Sharif said all the allegations made by the JIT in its report were in reference to his family's business dealings.

The meeting at the PM House was attended by the premier's brother Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz, other senior ministers and legal experts.

In April, a five-judge Supreme Court bench issued a landmark 540-page split judgement ordering setting up of the JIT comprising officials from different agencies including those from powerful spy agencies the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Military Intelligence.

The court will now decide how to proceed with the report and whether to call for a trial. The editorial found fault with the Sharif family in not going the extra mile to provide evidence and explanations to the satisfaction of the investigators.

Mr. Sharif will be challenging the JIT report in the Supreme Court. However, Sharif remains to be defiant and rubbishes the claims that his family members have acquired illegal wealth.

In papers submitted to the Panama Papers Joint Investigation Team (JIT) by Maryam Nawaz Sharif, papers that "prove" her ownership of certain high-end properties in London (but actually bought via shell companies based in the UK), the font Calibri has been used.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday that he would neither quit nor dissolve the National Assembly. If three judges agree on the findings of the JIT, Nawaz Sharif could face possible disqualification.

The PTI Chairman alleged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had been deceiving the public for power. Maryam Nawaz submitted one of the documents, which the JIT sent to London's Radley Forensic Document Laboratory as part of a rather unusual angle for an investigation.

The Prime Minister had "lost all moral authority", he said. Imran Khan, leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, and Bilawal Bhutto of the Pakistan Peoples Party have warned that democracy could be in danger if Mr. Sharif would not agree to step down. The information related to the properties in London owned by the Sharif family came out previous year after classified documents from the Panama based law firm Mossack Fonseca were leaked. If he were forced to step down, his ruling PML-N party could appoint a new leader as prime minister until the polls.

It is understood that the sooner the resignation comes, the lesser would be the damage to the party. Sharif's term expires in June 2018 and elections are expected two months later.

The prime minister asked if there was any corruption of even a rupee in any of the motorway or energy projects initiated by the PML-N government.
