Pupils defend teacher accused of sex with classmates

Saluzzo, August 30 - A group of pupils and colleagues of a teacher accused of having sex with students in a town in northeastern Italy have leapt to his defence. "For us he remains an icon," said students in a letter addressed to the town of Saluzzo, southeast of Turin. "He's one of the few teachers you could actually dialogue with". A former colleague also praised Valter Giordano, who was released Monday and placed under house arrest. "He's an excellent teacher, extremely sharp," said a teacher who gave his name as Paolo. "For me (the accusations) are a bunch of bollocks". The history and Italian teacher also stands accused of possessing child pornography in the form of photos of a student.
