Grossova property auctioned off

Property belonging to the wife of former prime minister Stanislav Gross was auctioned for 6.3 million crowns on Thursday, the equivalent of over 250, 000 dollars US, months after Mr Grossova suspended original business activities. Questionable business dealings and financing led to an eventual government crisis that resulted in her husband stepping down. Mrs Grossova and business partner Libuse Barkova had originally intended to use the property for the construction of a luxury housing area.
