Jubillar case: “Justice prefers to hide behind closed doors because it is ashamed”, Cédric’s lawyers are indignant


the essential
At the end of this sixth hearing, before the Toulouse Court of Appeal ruling on the release of their client, this Tuesday, October 11, the lawyers of Cédric Jubillar, imprisoned for more than a year in the investigation into the murder of his wife, led a violent charge against holding the hearings behind closed doors.

“Justice is ashamed of what it does and therefore it hides behind scandalous and unprecedented closed doors in criminal cases”, are indignant the lawyers of Cédric Jubillar, Mare Martin and Franck, who pleaded for the sixth time, this Tuesday, October 11, before the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal, for the release of their client.

“Violation of the presumption of innocence”

An audience once again sheltered from the gaze of the public kept for more than a year away from the discussions and whose media coverage of the content could “harm the serenity of the debates”, estimates justice. Sébastien and Stéphanie, the brother and sister of Delphine Jubillar, civil parties, followed the hearing and are still awaiting explanations from the main suspect who denies any involvement in the death of their sister whose body remains untraceable. On the merits of the case, the Advocate General requested the continued detention of Cédric Jubillar, imprisoned since June 18, 2021 and accused of having killed his wife, Delphine Jubillar, on the night of December 15 to 16, 2020, in Cagnac-les-Mines (81), against a background of marital crisis.

Preservation of clues, preventing all forms of pressure on the witnesses of the case and fear of disturbing public order, constitute the main arguments put forward by the court and the representative of the prosecution, to keep the painter plasterer in prison. The defense sees it as “the violation of the presumption of innocence”, in this case where “our client nevertheless has guarantees of representation and accommodation that we make available to him”. The court will deliver its judgment on October 18. A judicial reconstitution could take place before the end of the year. “We asked for it to know what the scenario retained by the justice […]if there is one”, continues Me Frank.
