We prove the uniqueness of the group measure space Cartan subalgebra in crossed products covering certain cases where is an amalgamated free product over a non-amenable subgroup. In combination with Kida's work we deduce that if denotes the subgroup of matrices with , then any free ergodic probability measure preserving action of is stably W*-superrigid. In the second part we settle a technical issue about the unitary conjugacy of group measure space Cartan subalgebras.
