Dame Lowell Goddard, who resigned as chairwoman of the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse in August, has denied making racist remarks while head of the inquiry.

According to The Times, Justice Goddard said Britain had so many paedophiles “because it has so many Asian men”.

In a statement issued on Friday, Justice Goddard said the claims were false.

“I await the advice of my London lawyers on these articles, which I have only just seen. I confirm my absolute rejection of this attack,” she said.

“I am confident that in New Zealand my known reputation from my work over many years will provide its own refutation of these falsities.

“I will be making no further statement and will not engage with those conducting this vicious campaign.”

She said her lawyers had informed The Times of “the falsity of the matters raised, and the malicious background to them”.

Unnamed sources in The Times also alleged Justice Goddard treated staff with contempt and flew into rages, a claim she also denied.
