Indonesia's ex-dictator Suharto was to undergo several medical tests on Thursday as the health of the 86-year-old remained critical, one of his doctors said.
Suharto, who held Indonesia in an iron grip for 32 years until he was forced to step down a decade ago, was admitted to hospital last week with anaemia and low blood pressure, as well as problems with his heart, kidneys and lungs.
He slid into critical condition, and has since improved and relapsed several times.
"Still critical," Marjo Soebiandono, one of the large team of doctors assembled to treat the former president, was quoted by AFP as telling reporters before going to see him.
He said Suharto's various organs were still not functioning optimally.
