An NGO representing families of the victims who died when a ferry sank in Kiribati, killing at least 80 people in January, says it's preparing legal action against the government.

Kiribati Citizens Against Corruption is also demanding the release of a report into the disaster.

The government has said the report will be released eventually, but it's still considering whether to lay criminal charges.

Kiribati Citizens Against Corruption's chief executive, Ngatau Neneia, explained its plans to Mackenzie Smith.
