Prediction: The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will continue to be exactly like a ship carrying a cargo that will never reach any port…
Dame Lowell Goddard accused of being a ‘monstrous racist tyrant’
- Dame Lowell was appointed by then-Home Secretary Theresa May over a year ago, who knew she would help to navigate the ship without it ever reaching a port.
- Dame Lowell did not leave her post voluntarily, as she was effectively fired, says DailyMail.
- As chair of Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, she had lost confidence of senior staff and members of inquiry panel before she was effectively fired.
- In her first year, she spent 30 days on leave and 44 “working” in Australia. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
Top Kiwi judge Dame Lowell Goddard has denied a British media report claiming she made derogatory remarks to her staff and mistreated them, while working on a major UK inquiry into child sex abuse.
Whitehall officials close to Theresa May were accused last night of covering up allegations of misconduct, including racist remarks, made against the judge in charge of Britain’s biggest public inquiry.
Home Office staff and advisers received warnings about Dame Lowell Goddard’s offensive behaviour in her role as chairwoman of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) but did not end her “catastrophic” leadership.
Dame Lowell, 67, finally quit in August after 18 months. It is claimed that her aggressive and abusive conduct at times reduced the inquiry’s operation to “near paralysis”. http://www.thetimes.co.uk/
“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 reportedly 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 was quoted saying. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
Insiders said Dame Lowell, 67, also appeared to have memory lapses [role play, or the onset of Alzheimer’s?] and failed to grasp legal concepts. But no action was taken, leaving the inquiry in turmoil.
ONE ABUSE INQUIRY BUT 13 DIFFERENT INVESTIGATIONS
The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is to carry out 13 separate investigations:
Allegations of child sexual abuse linked to Westminster – This will be an ‘overarching inquiry’ into allegations of abuse and exploitation involving ‘people of public prominence associated with Westminster’. It will examine high profile claims involving ‘current or former’ MPs, senior civil servants and members of the [military,] intelligence and security agencies.
The Roman Catholic Church – This will look into the extent of any institutional failures to protect children from abuse within the church in England and Wales.
The Anglican Church – This investigation will look at the extent of any institutional failures to protect children from abuse within the Anglican Church.
The internet – The inquiry will look into institutional responses to child sexual abuse and exploitation ‘facilitated’ by the internet. This will include investigations of the policies of internet firms.
Residential schools – This will investigate abuse and exploitation of children in residential schools in both the state and independent sector.
Nottinghamshire councils – This will look into the extent of any institutional failures to protect children in the care of Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire councils following allegations of widespread sexual abuse and exploitation.
Lambeth Council – This will examine the extent of any institutional failures to protect children after allegations of abuse in children’s homes run by the London authority.
Lord Janner – This will look into allegations of child sex abuse against Lord Greville Janner. The peer, who died aged 87 in December, is alleged to have abused children over a period spanning more than 30 years.
Protection of children outside the UK – This will scrutinise ‘grave allegations’ that have emerged regarding abuse by individuals working for British institutions and organisations abroad.
Sexual abuse of children in custodial institutions – This will examine the scale of abuse within the secure estate for children and young people. The inquiry has identified Medomsley Youth Detention Centre, County Durham, as the first case study.
Child sexual exploitation by organised networks – This will focus on institutional responses to systematic grooming and sexual abuse of children by groups of offenders as seen in cities including Rotherham, Rochdale and Oxford.
Cambridge House, Knowl View and Rochdale – An inquiry into allegations of the sexual abuse and exploitation of children residing at or attending Cambridge House Boys’ Hostel, Knowl View School, and other institutions where their placement was arranged or provided by Rochdale Borough Council.
Accountability and reparations for victims and survivors of abuse – This arm of the inquiry will focus on the support services and legal remedies available to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3837325/Judge-quit-child-sex-abuse-inquiry-racist-tyrant-Dame-Lowell-Goddard-denies-saying-Britain-paedophiles-Asian-men.html
