Agriculture Minister Eduard Grama will stay under house arrest, as prosecutors probe him for graft.
A court from Chisinau issued the decision.
Eduard Grama was detained last Wednesday in a corruption investigation, as his house and office were searched.
The official is charged with taking money to ease the expropriation of nine ha of land belonging to a college.
