The vote Thursday comes after this week's attempts to arrest former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, who has become a high-profile anti-corruption campaigner in Ukraine. Saakashvili supporters freed him from a police van after he was detained on Tuesday.

In a televised briefing on Wednesday, Saakashvili - supporters see him as a fearless crusader against corruption - said he would not present himself to law enforcement officials, as requested by the General Prosecutor's office.

"I am prepared to meet an investigator of the prosecutor in the tent city", he said.
