In a Cabinet meeting in Islamabad, Mr. Sharif said: "I will not resign on the demand of a group of conspirators".

He said that a joint meeting of all opposition parties would be held on Friday (today) to prepare an appropriate strategy against the government.

Sharif, who is now on his third-term having been ousted twice in the past, found himself under investigation following the historic Panama Papers leak a year ago.

In its report submitted to the apex court, the JIT recommended that a corruption case should be filed against Sharif and his sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, as well as daughter Maryam, under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordinance 1999.

Journalist Mubashir Zaidi said the PM should now write his resignation "in #Calibri font".

ValueWalk did some digging into the history of the Calibri font and received exclusive commentary from the design house that created it.

"It has been proved beyond doubt that Ms Maryam Safdar had been the owner of Avenfield properties", the JIT stated, adding that the documents submitted by the respondents are "fake and manipulated". Since Calibri wasn't widely available back in 2006, the investigators find it easy to believe that the documents were forged. According to Dawn, citing design-company Lucas Fonts states that Calibri was delivered to Microsoft in finished form in 2004. After that, he said, it was used in beta versions that would have required "serious effort" to obtain. Later the first betas of Longhorn (codename for Microsoft Vista Operating system) appeared in public.

The corruption controversy which has engulfed her family erupted previous year with the publication of 11.5 million secret documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, revealing the offshore dealings of numerous world's rich and powerful.

During the meeting with the lawmakers of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN), Sharif would take stock of the prevailing political situation in the country. It was made available to volume license customers (resellers) on November 30, 2006, and later to retail on January 30, 2007, the same respective release dates of Windows Vista.

The report by the investigative team goes on to claim the Sharif family had accrued substantial wealth far exceeding their earnings, leading to a call by Opposition leader Imran Khan for Mr Sharif to step down.

"Nawaz's authority is completely eroded", Shah Mehmood Qureshi, vice chairman of the opposition PTI party, told Reuters.
