Today, Buiucani District Court ruled that Emma Tabarta will stay under house arrest for 30 days, until 25 September.
Anti-corruption prosecutors asked the court to extend the mandate of preventive arrest; however, the request was partially accepted.
Tabarta was detained in a criminal case for negligence in service, which allegedly allowed laundering of $ 20 billion through Moldindconbank.
Her lawyer, Sergiu Cotruta, says that the measure is tough and he will challenge it to the Court of Appeal, while the prosecutor Eugen Balan says they will examine the arguments of the court's decision and will decide later whether to appeal the decision or not.
Tabarta was detained in early August with two other officials of the National Bank of Moldova on the accusation of involvement in money laundering in the amount exceeding 20 billion dollars from Russia by Moldovan banks.
