"They detained Mikheil! They are taking him to Security Service department on Askoldov lane," Savkarelidze wrote.
The spokesperson of the Movement of New Forces party Mariana Pochtar has confirmed the information about the detention of Saakashviliі, and informed in commentary to the Ukrainian Truth agency that law enforcers are attacking the tent camp.
Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko in Facebook said that Saakashvili was placed in the detention facility.
"Acting upon a search warrant, the officers of the National Police have located Saakashvili in Kyiv and detained him. The detainee has been placed in a temporary detention facility. Law enforcers are to investigate and appeals to the court to select a preventive measure. Officers, as promised, did everything to avoid extreme force use and bloodshed, " Lutsenko said.
At the same time, Movement of New Forces in Facebook called on Saakashvili's associates to gather near the Security Service office.
As it was reported earlier Saakashvili was detained before in the suspicion of the support of the criminal group in the organization of the criminal activity. According to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, Saakashvili financed the protests to take power for the funds of the allies of Viktor Yanukovych, the former president of Ukraine. Later Saakashvili claimed that the accusations of the Prosecutor’s General Office of his ties with oligarch Sergy Kurchenko are fake.
Saakashvili succeeded to release from the car of the law enforcers after a few failed attempts to pass him to the SBU. He made for the Ukrainian parliament right after the release.
At 6 am today, December 6 the law enforcers came into the protester's camp near the Ukrainian Parliament in the attempt to search for Saakashvili but did not succeed. The clashes took place between the law enforcers and the protesters when both the civilians and the police officers suffered.
