Francisco Javier Errazuriz Talavera (b. May 7, 1942) is a Chilean businessman and a former senator and presidential candidate of the Progressive Union of the Centrist Center. He is commonly known as Fra-fra, due to the fact that he was a stutterer during his childhood.

Life

He was born in Santiago, son of former senator Ladislao Errazuriz and Amelia Talavera. He studied in the Liceo Aleman and the Escuela Militar Bernardo O'Higgins, reaching the rank of "brigadier major". He established various companies across Chile, but his most successful endeavor was the Unimarc supermarkets.

On 1989, Errazuriz decided to create the Progressive Union of the Centrist Center and become a candidate in the presidential elections that year. He won 15% of the vote, but managed only to take votes from right-wing candidate Hernan Buchi.

On 1994, Errazuriz was elected Senator for the 10th Congressional District, North Maule, for the period 1994 to 2002. From 1998 to 2000, Errazuriz presided over the Economic Commission.

Legal problems

However, the Rancagua Appeals Court accused Errazuriz of "crimes and kidnapping" on December 22, 1998, due to the accusations by attorney Francisco Fernandez, who said he had been attacked and retained against his will by workers of Errazuriz in his property in Maule. The Supreme Court voted to strip Errazuriz of his senatorial immunity on 1999, the first time a senator lost his immunity since 1967.

Errazuriz then tried to sue Fernandez for libel, but the Rancagua Appeals Court rejected the case. Errazuriz then lodged a complaint against the court. The Supreme Court rejected Errazuriz claims, too, and acquitted Fernandez. This was not the end of Errazuriz' legal troubles however.

Errazuriz had been having a legal fight over property against Marcos Jaramillo for a long time, and by 1998 there were several lawsuits between Errazuriz and Jaramillo. Errazuriz decided to take matters into his own hands and threatened Jaramillo with a shotgun when Jaramillo entered what Errazuriz considered his property. Jaramillo then accused Errazuriz of armed trespass and death threats against him and his family. In response, Errazuriz donated his property to the municipality of Pichilemu to make it into a "resort for the people". The court decided against Jaramillo, who was sentenced to prison for 61 days for libel against Errazuriz.

Three of Errazuriz's companies then went bankrupt and investigations were carried out against another of his companies, Inverraz (Inversiones Errazuriz). The Unimarc supermarkets were soon dwarfed by the two most popular supermarkets, Lider and Jumbo. Amid all this trouble, Errazuriz left his senate seat on 2000.
