Víctor Pey Casado (31 August 1915 – 5 October 2018) was a Spanish-born Chilean engineer, professor, and businessman. He was born in Madrid. Pey turned 100 in 2015.[1] Pey was known as a political advisor to President Salvador Allende.

Pey was persecuted by the military junta and went into exile, not returning until the 1990s. He was a critic of the Pinochet regime. After a 19-year legal lawsuit between Pey and the Chilean government, the case was dismissed without Pey receiving any damages.

Pey died on 5 October 2018 in Santiago de Chile at the age of 103.[2]
