In prison for nearly a year, Cédric Jubillar, suspect number 1 in the disappearance of his wife Delphine, still proclaims his innocence. One of his three lawyers, Me Alexandre Martin, pleads this Thursday, June 9 for a new release of his client.
Will the Delphine Jubillar affair experience a new twist this Thursday, June 9th? In any case, this is what Me Alexandre Martin, one of the three lawyers for Cédric Jubillar, in prison since June 18, 2021, will try. The husband, suspect number 1 in the disappearance of a woman in Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), indeed arrives at the end of his warrant of criminal committal of twelve me for which he was placed in detention provisional.
It will be a question today for his lawyer to avoid the extension of six months of this mandate by a judge of freedoms and detention. Me Alexandre Martin explains to the Parisian that he will try by all means to restore his freedom to Cédric. “A symbolic and important procedural step”, judges the lawyer.
First of all by asking for a placement under judicial control outside the department of the Tarn department. If the judge refuses, Cédric Jubillar’s lawyer will propose house arrest using an electronic bracelet. A solution which would not, however, according to him “not make much sense”, “He proclaims his innocence and any attempt to flee would be an implied admission guilt,” he explained.
A “scandalous” detention
Because according to Me Alexandre Martin, the detention of Cédric Jubillar “is both scandalous and unfounded on the legal level except to carry an intolerable attack on the presumption of innocence “he regrets to our colleagues. If he does not hope that the judge pronounces the innocence of Cédric Jubillar, the lawyer considers that the detention is no longer tenable in the current state of affairs.
By justifying that “there is no risk regarding the preservation of evidence which has all been the subject of samples and expertise. The risk of pressure on witnesses is just as zero insofar as these witnesses have all already been heard on several occasions.”
He denounces a form of relentless justice on a man whose guilt could not be proven: “It is time for justice to open its eyes, release Cédric and for the investigation to continue”.
Unlocking Delphine’s phone still questions
For him, the central element that could exonerate Cédric lies in the unlocking of Delphine’s phone the morning of her disappearance. A “human intervention” indeed used the Huawei at 6:52 a.m. on December 16, 2020. Outside at the same time, Cédric Jubillar was in the presence of the gendarmes and could not have used the telephone.
So who did it? “A technical element that everything seems to make fun of”, but which Me Alexandre Martin wants to clarify and allow his client to benefit from the presumption of innocence.
