Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers filed a request for release on October 18. This was refused: the defense appealed and has another appointment with justice on November 16th.
Cédric Jubillar, the husband of Delphine, the Tarn nurse who has been missing since December 2020, will he stay in prison? The detainee’s lawyers had filed a request for the release of their client on October 18. This was very likely rejected by the judge of freedoms and detention. According to The Parisianappealed and have an appointment before the investigating chamber on Tuesday 16 November.
For Mes Jean-Baptiste Alary, Emmanuelle Franck and Alexandre Martin, who defend Cédric Jubillar, it will be a question of making the Toulouse Court of Appeal understand that the elements brandished by the prosecution are too weak to justify the incarceration of their customer. On October 15, the latter had denounced “an abusive incarceration”.
New hearing before the investigating judges
As a reminder, Cédric Jubillar was indicted on June 18 for “murder by spouse”. He was immediately referred and placed in solitary confinement in the Toulouse-Seysses remand center (Haute-Garonne). His lawyers had appealed: the hearing was held on July 6. At the end of August, the latter had made a first request for release. The defense then appealed on September 14.
Since mid-October, no new element has been brought to the file. “No new element has emerged. The defense can only consider that justice is manifestly incapable of putting forward elements which would make it possible to establish that Cédric Jubillar is guilty of the acts with which he is accused, explained Me Martin on 15 last October. We are also surprised that it will take several more weeks for Cédric Jubillar to be heard for what he is accused of, then it will be in December. Four months of waiting to learn that!” Cédric Jubillar was heard for the first time by the investigating judges on Friday, October 15. It should be received again at the end of the year.
