An inquest is being held in Tonga into last year's death of a man whose remains were found on the JeReVe yacht with 200 kilogrammes of cocaine on board.

The Deputy Police Commissioner, 'Unga Fa'oa, has told Matangi Tonga that the inquest will draw a conclusion on what evidence is available for a judge and jury to establish a cause of death.

The remains have been identified as that of Slovakian man Milan Rindzak.

He will be buried on Vava'u once the inquest is completed.
