Guido Girardi Lavin

Guido Girardi Lavin (born January 21, 1961) is a Chilean physician and politician. He is serving the period between 2006 and 2014 as senator for the district No. 7 for Santiago Poniente.[1] He is also serving as the current president of that chamber.

He usually takes progressive stances on social issues, such as defense of the environment and a critical stance against Private healthcare.[2][3][4]

He has also been involved in several controversies in Chile[5][6][7] He agitated a legal and social polemic for filing a complaint in November 2008 against two police officers who allegedly “disrespected” the senator while writing him a speeding ticket. Both officers were retired from the police.[8] He had used false bills from a nonexistent company, Publicam, in order to justify his campaign expenses to the Servicio de Impuestos Internos (Internal Tax Service).[9]
