Miguel Nazar Haro (c. 1924 – 26 January 2012) was the head of Mexico's Dirección Federal de Seguridad (Federal Security Directorate) from 1978 to 1982. Nazar Haro and the Directorate were involved in the Mexican government's so called Dirty War against leftist insurgents, social movements and the government's political opposition. Nazar Haro was arrested in 2004 on charges stemming from the disappearance of a group of alleged guerrillas. In 2006, these charges were dropped.[1][2]

Under his command the DFS was accused by the American DEA of protecting drug lords and their traffic operations.[3][4]
