''Yes, he has been hospitalized,'' Titi Wahyuni, spokeswoman of the Pertamina Central Hospital in South Jakarta, told Kyodo News, adding that he arrived there at 2:30 p.m.
But neither she nor Marjo Subijandono, a member of the presidential medical team, would provide details on Suharto'a ailment or his condition.
Suharto's lawyer Muhammad Assegaff said the former strongman has ''nothing serious'' and may only be having medical checkup.
Media reports said Suharto was accompanied to the hospital by his eldest daughter Siti Hadijanti Rukmana.
In May last year, Suharto was treated for about one month at the same hospital after suffering from intestinal bleeding.
Suharto has been hospitalized on several occasions for various illnesses since 1998, when he was forced to step down in the face of mass protests after 32 years in power.
He was a defendant in a multimillion-dollar corruption case, but in 2000 a court declared him too ill to stand trial.//Kyodo News - January 4, 2008
