Author and professor Steven Galloway has issued his first statement since he was fired in June from the University of British Columbia – under a veil of secrecy.

Galloway confirms in a statement issued by his lawyer that he was accused of sexual assault – but says the only complaint substantiated by a former judge’s investigation – was that he had an affair with a student.

Galloway expresses profound regret for his conduct and apologizes for the harm it has caused.

The statement says Galloway has grave concerns with the investigative process followed by UBC – including, but not limited to – the way the university chose to communicate with the public.

Galloway is seeking fair treatment for all involved – and asks for an end to the “scurrilous assertions and accusations” that have proliferated in the vacuum of information.

Last week, prominent Canadian authors including Margaret Atwood signed a letter demanding an inquiry into the school’s handling of the case.

UBC has said it made the decision to fire Galloway – following a thorough legal process.
