Attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali has been appointed to the board of directors of Lembaga Tabung Haji.

He is listed as a director of the pilgrimage fund on its website.

This comes as the fund is reported to have slipping reserves, raising alarm among its depositors.

"Yes, we can confirm the appointment of Apandi Ali on Tabung Haji's board of directors recently," Tabung Haji communications and public affairs division general manager Anis Zuhani Ahmad told The Malaysian Reserve .

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki this morning assured that all is well in Tabung Haji, and further details will be released later today.

He said this in response to a leaked letter allegedly from Bank Negara Malaysia warning Tabung Haji of its slipping reserves.

BNM warned that this could undermine the fund's ability to pay dividends, which could result in mass withdrawals from depositors.

The news also comes as Apandi announced that no charges will be made against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

This is regarding the RM2.6 billion found in Najib's bank accounts and RM42 million alleged to be channelled to Najib from state-owned firm SRC International.

Apandi said all the cases are now closed.
