A Samoan man, who had been a prisoner in Huatolitoli Prison in Tonga, is being buried today, a month after he died.

Leuma Laulu, who died after being admitted to Vaiola Hospital, is being being buried in Tonga after the Tonga Government finally managed to reach his family in Samoa.

Laulu had been convicted of a sexual offence.
