Dušan Letica (Serbian Cyrillic: Душан Летица; 23 October 1884 – 19 September 1945) was a Serbian lawyer, translator, and Axis Power collaborationist during World War II.

Letica was a minister in the Nedić's regime and served as Minister of Finance of the Government of National Salvation from 29 August 1941 until the end of October 1943 during the war. He was captured by the Soviets in May 1945 in Hamburg, Germany following the war, and was charged with war crimes and sentenced to death in Belgrade with fifteen others Serbian Nazi collaborators.

He was one of the closest associates of Milan Aćimović in the commissioner government (1941) and Milan Nedić (1941-43) in the Government of National Salvation. At the start of his career he was a lawyer and a politician in the People's Radical Party (1918–36), and later the Yugoslav Radical Union (1936–40).
