Widow of British soldier killed on Cyprus RAF base demands action

The widow of a British soldier killed in a road accident while serving in Cyprus in 2016 has demanded that the US serviceman involved faces prosecution.

Colour Sergeant Anthony Oxley, then 40, was riding a motorbike at RAF Akrotiri when he was involved in a crash with a Toyota Corolla driven by an American serviceman. The US driver has never been publicly named.

Oxley left behind a daughter and three stepchildren.

According to Sky News, a new translation of the proceedings of the Cypriot inquest bares evidence from the investigating officer that there was “sufficient evidence” to prosecute the other driver “for causing death by reckless/dangerous acts”.

“Let’s get the truth out there,” Sally Oxley told Sky. “I would like to see him prosecuted. You can’t take a man’s life and be whisked back to America to live your life and leave a family in absolute turmoil.”
