Relatives become a civil party
In recent days, no new element has emerged from the investigation, but the criminal track is clearly privileged. “Nothing indicates that this disappearance could have been voluntary”, indicated the Toulouse prosecutor Dominique Alzeari on December 23, in the press release announcing the opening of a judicial investigation for “arbitrary arrest, kidnapping, detention or sequestration”.
“For my clients, two cousins and three friends who really constitute the first circle of the disappeared, a voluntary disappearance would not correspond at all to Delphine”, told the Figaro Me Philippe Pressecq, who became a civil party in their name on Tuesday, January 5. These four women and this man, who were interrogated and searched, are “Very worried”, according to their lawyer. “They still want to believe in a happy ending, but that thought is dwindling day by day …”
For his part, the husband of Delphine Jubillar, around whom many rumors circulate, hired the president of Albi, Me Jean-Baptiste Alary. In an interview with La Dépêche du Midi , the latter denounced the “Hasty and unbearable comparisons” do with the Daval case. “It’s the calendar that is unhappy”, lamented the lawyer, referring to the recent conviction of Jonathann Daval to 25 years of imprisonment for the murder of his wife Alexia.
