Albano Eduardo Harguindeguy (born 1927) was a general of the Argentine Army, and the interior minister of Argentina under dictator Jorge Rafael Videla, during the National Reorganization Process (19761983).
Harguindeguy, allegedly involved in human rights abuses, benefitted from the pardon of President Carlos Menem in 1989, along with other members of the dictatorship. In 2004 he refused to testify before a judge investigating illegal detentions and killings under Operation Condor, and he was put under house arrest.
In 2006, another judge struck down Harguindeguy's pardon (along with Videla and that of fellow minister Jose Alfredo Martinez de Hoz) as unconstitutional.
