The lawyers of Cédric Jubillar, suspected of the murder of his wife Delphine, fear a "miscarriage of justice".

They therefore filed a new request for the release of their client on Monday.

At the end of the first appearance hearing which took place on Friday, the defenders of the main suspect in the case of the disappearance of the 33-year-old nurse had warned that they would make this appeal, believing that he was "improperly detained".

For Jean-Baptiste Alary, lawyer for Cédric Jubillar, "from the moment you find a culprit before looking for him, there is still more chance of being wrong than when the guilt results from real reasoning".

A first rejected request

This is the second time that lawyers have applied for release.

The first was formulated in August, then rejected in September.

The call had met the same fate.

Before that, at the beginning of July, Cédric Jubillar had appealed against his placement in pre-trial detention.

Friday before the two investigating judges, Cédric Jubillar maintained that he had nothing to do with the disappearance of his wife, who had announced his intention to divorce him. “He proclaims his innocence, his despair. He has no place in prison, nor in solitary confinement (…) he was questioned for four hours, he answered all the questions with serenity and sincerity ”, declared another of his lawyers, Alexandre Martin, who considers that the presumption of innocence is not respected.

Delphine Jubillar, mother of their two children, disappeared during the night of December 15 to 16, 2020 from the couple's house in Cagnac-les-Mines, a village in the Tarn.

On December 16, 2020 at dawn, the husband had reported his disappearance to the gendarmes.

For its part, justice emphasizes that there are "serious and concordant clues" which led investigators to suspect him.
