The Home Office was accused of a cover-up last night amid contested claims that the former head of the beleaguered child sexual abuse inquiry made shocking comments about ethnic minorities.
Dame Justice Lowell Goddard, who resigned as head of the national public inquiry into child abuse in August, was facing toxic claims last night that she made racist remarks about multicultural Britain.
The allegations reported by The Times were strenuously denied by the judge, amid suggestions that she was the victim of false slurs.
It raised questions for Prime Minister Theresa May who set up the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse when she was Home Secretary and appointed New Zealander Dame Lowell as chairman.
Home Office officials knew of the judge’s allegedly offensive remarks yet failed to act, it was alleged. Dame Lowell is accused of saying Britain had so many paedophiles ‘because it has so many Asian men’.
She was also reported to have voiced shock at the size of the country’s ethnic minority population and allegedly complained of having to travel 50 miles from London to see a white face.
‘I was so shocked to see the number of ethnic people,’ she told a colleague according to a newspaper report.
It is also claimed that she flew into expletive-ridden rages and treated inquiry staff at Millbank Tower with contempt. ‘She behaved like a monstrous tyrant and we were all horrified and saying this can’t be allowed to carry on, but internally we felt paralysed,’ a source is quoted saying.
