The organisation made famous by The Da Vinci Code has allegedly been operating from secret headquarters in Canberra for several decades.
“Yes, secret societies do exist. And this is a very sad day for our Australian members,” said Australian Grandmaster Les Pontils in an exclusive interview with the Canberra News Digestive.
The mythical organisation was rumoured to have a secret door to underground headquarters, which were accessed under the Northern end of the Kings Avenue Bridge.
“I would not like to comment on the location of our headquarters. There is some history there that should remain buried. Although I will say I have grown very fond of that new ASIO building.”
As Grandmaster, Pontils is claimed to have had powerful connections such as the Federal Opposition Leader, the Archbishop of Cooma, and former celebrity Bruce Samazan.
“There is still much work to be done in the name of the Knights Templar, but we may just have to leave that to the Freemasons, or the Weston Creek Illuminati.”
The Priory of Sion was alleged to have many famous Grandmasters including Léonard de Vinci, Isaac Newton, and Rollo Tamasi.
