Justice will make its decision Monday, July 4 on the continued detention or not of Cédric Jubillar. The 34-year-old plasterer painter is accused of having killed his wife Delphine, in December 2020, in the Tarn. This Tuesday, June 28, his lawyers urged justice to respect “the presumption of innocence”, pleading for the release of their client, imprisoned for a year and placed in solitary confinement.
After three hours of debate before the investigating chamber, this Tuesday, June 28, in Toulouse, Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers who are still asking for his release believe that their client “will end up being cleared”.
After the continued detention pronounced on June 13 by the judge of freedoms and detention, Mare Martin, Franck and Alary once again scrapped to obtain the release of the 34-year-old plasterer painter, imprisoned for a year, accused of having killed his wife Delphine Jubillar, on the night of December 15 to 16, 2020, in Cagnac-les -Mines (81).
“One more lie”
But the battle is still far from won. “Cédric Jubillar lied when he claimed to have put his phone in airplane mode on the evening of December 15, while charging it. This device was turned off and the charge index reading the next day was much lower than it should have been if it had been charged. However, it was not in the habits of this man to turn off his telephone”, maintains, Me Laurent Boguet, civil party, representing the interests of the children of the Jubillar couple, aged 3 and 7 and pleading in favor of maintaining in custody of the main suspect. A point of the file which is debated since it would highlight, according to the prosecution, “one more lie” by Cédric Jubillar in this case.
For the defense which urges justice “to respect the presumption of innocence” in a file, without traces, nor corpse, the argument of the telephone as one of the cornerstones of the accusation “does not hold water”.
“A disaster for the truth”
” Who are we laughing at ? insists Me Alary, after the hearing. They want us to believe that Cédric Jubillar turned off his phone at 10:08 p.m. because he knew he was going to kill his wife? He’s not even prosecuted for murder! The accusation is once again incoherent”. His colleague, Me Franck, goes further: “This justice ends up being scary. It is this justice that we fear for ourselves and for our loved ones. It is justice that is stubborn and that analyzes all the elements as being dependent. It is this justice that drives us crazy and which we have known for a year can only lead to disaster. And not only for Cédric Jubillar, a disaster for the truth, a disaster for Delphine’s family and for those close to her.
Relatives of the nurse, like Sébastien, one of the brothers of the disappeared, present during the hearing. For the first time, Séverine, Cédric Jubillar’s companion, saw this man’s face again, in the box, a year later.
Justice is still awaiting expert feedback, particularly on the car of someone close to Cédric Jubillar. The search also resumed in Cagnac-les-Mines to find the body of the nurse. To preserve the clues and the investigation, the Advocate General requested that the main suspect be kept in detention. Decision expected, Monday, July 4, 1:30 p.m.
