Update (18 June): The CEO of US-based public relations agency 5WPR, Ross Torossian, issued the following emailed statement:

Clearly all of the American media reports regarding Maira Nazarbayev have been completely inaccurate.

“The young man Khanbolat Nazarbayev, the 10-year old son of Bolat and Maira is enrolled in a posh private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, a very close distance from the couple’s Plaza Hotel residence. The young man lives in New York City and will continue to attend York Prepatory Academy. It is unfortunate that this private family matter has been manipulated and exploited by parties with political interests. The family expects to be able to resolve this matter amicably in the best interest of their children. Daniyar Nazarbayev remains enrolled in the famed Sandhurst Military College,” said Ronn Torossian, spokesperson for the Nazarbayev family.

(Media had reported that Daniyar lived in the apartment when in fact the 10 year old son of Bolat and Maira lives with his parents – as can be verified with the attached document which shows Khanbolat school enrollment.)
