Former Czech Republic Prime Minister Stanislav Gross on 16 April 2015 died after a long illness. He was 45.
He was the youngest Prime Minister of the Czech Republic from 2004 to 2005 at the age of 34.
A member of the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD), he served as Minister of the Interior from 2000 to 2004.
Less than a year later, he left office amid a scandal over the source of funds he used to buy a Prague apartment.
Gross later returned to law and also invested in a Czech electricity company, raising more questions from the media over his finances, although an anti-corruption probe found no wrongdoing.
In recent months Czech media have reported that Gross was battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
