President Miloš Zeman says that if former prime minister Stanislav Gross has found religion, he should give away his fortune. Mr. Gross recently said that he had accepted Christ and apologised to those he had disappointed. Speaking in a radio interview on Wednesday, Mr. Zeman said if he had genuinely become religious he should pay heed to Jesus’s instruction to a rich young man to sell his property, give to the poor and follow him. The president said this was unlikely to happen. Mr. Gross was once Europe’s youngest prime minister but quit politics after questions arose over how he had financed his flat. He later became extremely wealthy through the sale of shares.
