The trial of Büyüktürk, a teacher accused of sexually abusing 10 male students, began and ended yesterday in the central province of Karaman, where the abuse took place.The 54-year-old suspect in the case briefly volunteered for a charity in 2013, prompting a defamation campaign against the Ensar Foundation, a renowned charity known for providing aid to students across Turkey for housing and scholarships. Ensar's president donned his lawyer's garb Wednesday to defend victims in the trial of Büyüktürk. İsmail Cenk Dilberoğlu, the president of the Ensar Foundation and also a lawyer, decided to address the allegations head on, representing the victims in the case. Dilberoğlu was among a large group of lawyers who arrived in the courthouse in Karaman to represent the victims. The defendant faces multiple life sentences for sexual assault of a child as well as other acts of sexual abuse. He also faced charges for forcing children between the ages of 12 and 14 to watch pornography.
