WIDOW OF BRITISH SERVICEMAN KILLED REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS HOPES FOR TRUTH FROM INQUEST IN NICOSIA
KRW LAW (Belfast) is working with L. ZAMBARTAS LLC (Republic of Cyprus) pro bono to assist Sally Oxley in the matter of the death of her husband Anthony Oxley. Colour Sergeant Oxley was killed following an accident involving his motorcycle and a car driven by a USAF Serviceman.
Both men were based at RAF Akrotiri, part of the Sovereign Base Authority of the UK, in the Republic of Cyprus.
Anthony Oxley died seven years today – 16 June 2016 – in the General Hospital in Nicosia.
Yesterday, a District Court in Nicosia adjourned an inquest until 21 September 2023 pending the full disclosure of evidence held by the State Prosecutor to the court and to Sally Oxley.
Mrs Oxley hopes that at the hearing in September this evidence may contribute to her understanding as to who was responsible for the death of her husband.
This truth has been denied to her since his death in 2016.
An inquest into the death of Anthony Oxley in held in Wakefield, England in 2018, is being challenged by way of an application to the Attorney General for England and Wales.
The coroner in that inquest relied upon evidence not disclosed to Sally Oxley in arriving at his verdict.
It is hoped that the District Judge in Nicosia will have all the evidence needed to establish the truth regarding the death of Anthony Oxley.
There remain questions regarding the original investigation into the accident and why jurisdiction was allowed by the MOD to be transferred from the SBA Police to the USAF.
