Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers affirm it: their client is innocent of the murder of his wife, Delphine. They then announced on Wednesday that they were going to appeal the referral of their client to the Tarn criminal court for the murder of his wife Delphine, a 33-year-old nurse, who has been missing since 2020.
“We took care to read this indictment order and we obviously decided to appeal it, considering that our client is innocent. We will exploit all the recourses at our disposal to demonstrate the vacuity of this file,” Alexandre Martin, one of the three lawyers for the plasterboard painter, told AFP, in detention since June 2021.
A press conference planned
The three lawyers will hold a press conference on Friday at 11 a.m. in their office in Toulouse. “We want to express ourselves in detail on the ordinance. Raising the appeal is a logical step because, from the beginning, our client has maintained his innocence and the file is empty,” emphasized Mr. Martin.
On Tuesday, the judges in charge of the Jubillar case signed the indictment order, paving the way for a trial before the Tarn Assize Court, probably at the end of 2024 or beginning of 2025, according to a judicial source.
