Stanislav Gross, Former Czech Premier, Dies at 45, Idnes Reports

Thursday, 16 Apr 2015 05:23 AM

(Bloomberg) -- Stanislav Gross, who became the Czech Republic’s youngest prime minister before resigning over questions about his personal finances, has died. He was 45.

Gross died last night, news website iDnes reported. It cited Eva Gregorova, a spokeswoman for his former party, the Social Democrats. Czech media reported that he suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurological disease that results in the loss of muscle function. Gregorova didn’t answer her mobile phone when contacted by Bloomberg.

Gross served as prime minister for less than nine months in 2004 and 2005 and was interior minister from 2000 to 2004. He was 35 and Europe’s youngest head of government when he was forced to resign over a dispute among his coalition partners about how he financed a flat in Prague and how his wife funded her business.
