The 71-year-old “secretly” checked himself into the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in northern Germany, and is being guarded by a heavy security detail, the paper said, without saying where it got the information.Contacted by AFP, hospital spokeswoman Christian Kreher declined to comment, saying she could neither confirm nor deny that Nazarbayev was there. She added however that the clinic had undertaken “no special security measures.” A Kazakh foreign ministry spokesman told AFP: “The president is currently on holiday” but without saying where.
