The first request was rejected last July by the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal, when the lawyers appealed the decision to detain their client.
How long will Cédric Jubillar remain in detention? The three lawyers for the husband of Delphine Jubillar, who disappeared on the night of December 15 to 16, 2020 in Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), sent this Wednesday, August 25 in the afternoon a request for the release of their client , told the Figaro Me Alexandre Martin, confirming information from The Dispatch .
Me Jean-Baptiste Alary, Me Alexandre Martin and Me Emmanuelle Franck had already requested the release of Cédric Jubillar in June by appealing the detention but, at the beginning of July, justice had rejected this request. The Toulouse Court of Appeal had considered that there were clues “serious and concordantshowing that Cédric Jubillar had been able to participate in the murder of his wife. The latter had been placed in pre-trial detention and indicted on June 18, 2021 for “murder of a spouse”, despite the “inconsistenciesof the file pointed out by the defense.

An appearance before the investigating judge scheduled for October
Today, the defense hopes to win the case, despite the absence of new elements. “It is precisely because there are no new elements that we made a new request: time passes and the file is still just as empty. It’s scandalous. Nothing is happening, and in the meantime a man is in custody“, laments to the Figaro Me Emmanuelle Franck.
Placed in solitary confinement since June, Cédric Jubillar still has no contact with the outside world, “if not a one-hour walk a day in a 15 square meter courtyard screened from floor to ceiling“, Reports the criminal lawyer, also stressing that, since his indictment, the defendant has not seen his children, currently hosted by one of the sisters of Delphine Jubillar.
According to our information, Cédric Jubillar should not be questioned by the investigating magistrate until October 2021, and should therefore remain in detention for at least two more months. Unless, by this second request, Cédric Jubillar is released.
