The Tongan parliament will today be presented with the final report into the Princess Ashika tragedy, paving the way for its public release.

The Easter weekend shifted some of the focus away from the Royal Commission's findings into the tragedy.

The final report was released just prior to Easter and was highly critical of the Tongan government and accuses it of buying an unsafe and unseaworthy vessel, that led to the deaths of 74 people.

Since then there have been calls for the entire Tongan cabinet to resign.

Speaking in Nuku'alofa, the ABC's Sean Dorney says there's been very little reaction to the report over the past few days, however quite a few people have already managed to view the report online.
