The judge of freedoms and detention had ordered that the main suspect in the disappearance of Cédric Jubillar be kept in detention on June 13.
His lawyers have not said their last word. While the liberty and detention judge rejected Cédric Jubillar’s request for release on June 13, his counsel appealed against this decision. The hearing will take place on June 28, learns BFMTV on Monday.
In the past, the main suspect in the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar, a nurse from Tarn who has not given any sign of life since December 2020, has already made several requests for release, all rejected by the judge.
“It’s scandalous in terms of the presumption of innocence, but France is accustomed to the fact. In an Anglo-Saxon country, it wouldn’t exist. […] The fight continues”, commented Me Alexandre Martin, one of his lawyers, after the announcement of the decision.
Suspect number one
In rendering his decision on June 13, the judge of freedoms and detention had considered that additional investigations still had to be carried out, which required the continued detention of the painter-plaqueur.
Since his indictment and his placement in pre-trial detention, in June 2021, Cédric Jubillar has claimed his innocence. But fellow prisoners mentioned to investigators that the suspect would have confided several times, admitting to having killed his companion.
