The long feud with Chile over the issue of political refugees and prisoners has prompted the Mexican government to sever diplomatic relations with the military junta which has governed Chile since Sep- tember, 1973. Foreign Minister Emilio Rabasa said here that relations between Mexico and Chile had been in jeopardy since the military overthrew Chile's Marxist President Salvador Allende a little over a year ago. The governing Mexican Revolutionary party (PRI) claims to follow socialist principles. One reason for maintaining relations so long was to protect more than 700 political refugees and others at the Mexican embassy in Santiago, Chile's capital city. Mexico was in- strumental in securing the release of dozens of political prisoners, including prominent associates of Allende, but Anne's parish, North Little Rock; Father William Burke, pastor of St. Jude the Apostle parish, Jacksonville; and Father Bede Luibel O.S.B., Veterans' Hospital chaplain. Allende was killed during the bloody coup, some sources say by his own hand. Rabasa said the "friendship and affinity between the government of Mexico and the Allende government" could not be extended to the new Chilean rulers, particularly "after their behavior at meetings of in- ternational organizations." The Mexican diplomat referred to the recent meeting in Quite of the Organization of American States held at the request of several member countries to lift the 10-year old economic and diplomatic attempt failed and Rabasa said that the Chilean vote against lifting the sanctions was a consideration in Mexico's decision to sever relations.

"The affair hurts and saddens one of the glorious Catholic communities of the East, the Melkite Church, in which Ar- chbishop Capucci has carried out his functions as a bishop for years and as a pastor in a region in which, amid the most varied historical vicissitudes, the figure of the heads of religious communities has traditionally been surrounded by respect and esteem." The Melkite-rite Archbishop could have received a maximum sentence of 35 years. He contended that he had been the victim of a frame-up.
