The appeal by the lawyers of the husband of the nurse who disappeared in 2020 was rejected on Friday. He has been detained since June 2021 on suspicion of the murder of his wife.
Lhe Court of Cassation announced on Friday the rejection of an appeal by the lawyers of Cédric Jubillar, suspected of the murder of his wife Delphine and detained for more than a year, who are asking for his release. On July 4, the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal estimated that the number one suspect in the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar, at the end of 2020 in the Tarn, should remain in prison, confirming the judge’s order Liberties and Detention (JLD), who had extended his pre-trial detention by six months in June. “After having examined both the admissibility of the appeal and the procedural documents, the Court of Cassation finds that there is, in this case, no means of such a nature as to allow the appeal to be admitted. Consequently, the Court declares the appeal not allowed, ”she wrote in her decision released on Friday.
Cédric Jubillar, 35, has been held in solitary confinement in the Seysses remand center, near Toulouse, since June 2021. His lawyers have multiplied in vain the appeals to the courts to obtain his release. Cédric Jubillar was once again questioned by the investigating judges on September 22 in Toulouse. One of his lawyers, Jean-Baptiste Alary, believes that the prosecution case is “empty” and that the presumption of innocence is flouted.
“Serious and consistent clues”
Delphine Jubillar, 33-year-old night nurse and mother of the couple’s two children, disappeared on the night of December 15 to 16, 2020, in full curfew due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost two years later, his body has still not been found. The couple, who lived in the village of Cagnac-les-Mines, near Albi, were in the process of divorce, a separation at the initiative of the nurse.
