A new request for the release of Cédric Jubillar has been rejected by the Toulouse Court of Appeal.
A new request for the release of Cédric Jubillar, suspected of the murder of his wife and detained for 9 months, was rejected on Tuesday by the Toulouse Court of Appeal, according to his lawyers, who denounce a breach of the presumption of innocence. .
“Justice will have to position itself, is it better to be an associate university professor than a plasterer from Tarn to get out of prison? This file is empty, this man must be released”, a reacted Me Alexandre Martin, in reference to Jacques Viguier, detainee under Toulouse law accused of the murder of his wife, who had been released after several months of.
Investigation : Jubillar case, the double game of the deceived husband
Delphine Jubillar, who worked as a night nurse in a clinic in Albi, disappeared in December 2020. Her husband, with whom she was in the process of divorcing, is the main suspect. He was indicted for murder and imprisoned on June 18, 2021. He claims to be innocent.
Justice believes that the investigators have provided enough evidence of the guilt of the 34-year-old plasterer painter to keep him in prison, while Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers claim that the file contains no irrefutable evidence.
“This poses a problem in the way justice is rendered in France, in which pre-trial detention is held, and in which the presumption of innocence is ensured”, storm Me Martin.
A new application for release will soon be filed
The investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal, he specifies, “rejected the appeal and considered that Mr. Jubillar should be kept in detention. It seems that we are being told to wait for the results of “Expertise, new confrontations. It is a file that is artificially provided alive, under a drip.
For Emmanuelle Franck, another lawyer for Cédric Jubillar, the investigators must redirect the investigation.
“At some point, she said, it has to stop, we admit that this Cédric Jubular component is over and we move on. If we don’t make progress on the search for Delphine Jubular , it is that we start from the postulate that it is Cédric Jubillar. When we look for another postulate, another culprit, perhaps we will find it.
A new request for release will be filed soon, the lawyers also said.
During the hearing on March 15, the public prosecutor had requested that it be maintained.
