If the previous requests have all failed, the lawyers hope this time to win their case, the hearing of Cédric Jubillar on February 11 as well as the searches around the couple’s home having yielded nothing.
Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers filed Wednesday, February 16 before the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal a new request for release, told AFP Me Alexandre Martin, one of the three defenders of the husband of Delphine Jubillar.
While the latter continues to deny any involvement in the disappearance of his wife, the latter had been indicted on June 18 for “murder of a spouse”. The Toulouse prosecutor’s office then pointed out that there were clues “serious and concordantproving that Cédric Jubillar could be involved in the murder of this nurse who disappeared in December 2020 in Cagnac-les-Mines, in the Tarn.
An “unbearable” detention
The 34-year-old painter and plasterer was heard again on Friday February 11 by the two judges in charge of the investigation. The interrogation in question centered on the statements that Cédric Jubillar would have made to a cell neighbor: his fellow prisoner had assured the investigators that Cédric Jubillar had told him that he had buried the body of his wife not far from their house.
Me Emmanuelle Franck, who also advises Cédric Jubillar, had denounced last week “an interrogation on the void, which highlights the state of perdition in which the accusation finds itself“, even though the searches around the couple’s home did not lead to any results.
Delphine Jubillar, 33 years old at the time of her disappearance, disappeared during the night of December 15 to 16, 2020, in full curfew. Her husband had alerted the gendarmes in the early morning, claiming that she had gone out to walk their dogs the evening before and that she had not returned.
While Cédric Jubillar has been in solitary confinement since June 18, 2021, his counsel continues to denounce a situation deemed “insupportable“. “The isolation regime is a form of pressure on him“, believes in this sense Me Jean-Baptiste Alary, one of his lawyers. Several requests for release had already been filed before the February 11 hearing, but they were all systematically rejected.
