Lisbon, Portugal. According to a document issued on April 3, 2012 by Rui Clemente Lele, the Regular Grand Lodge of Portugal interrupts its relations with the French National Grand Lodge. GLLP's Grand Secretary informed the Worshipful Masters of all Masonic Lodges in Portugal that the Grand Lodge is forced to suspend relations with GLNF and that the situation deteriorated further after Stifani's re-election as Grand Master.
