BERLIN — The investigation into the death of a whistle-blower in Albania appears to be nearing its conclusion, but with little hope of quelling the suspicion and speculation surrounding the case.
Kosta Trebicka, a witness in an inquiry, died last month.

The whistle-blower, Kosta Trebicka, uncovered evidence of public corruption in the export of ammunition from the Communist era. His accusations were followed by arrests in Albania and charges against the employees of an arms-dealing company in the United States, but only after an explosion at a munitions facility in the town of Gerdec killed 26 people, including children.
