The priest, who is accused of having killed Tutsis in Kabgayi, has been in prison for more than ten years.
Another Catholic priest from the same Diocese of Kabgayi, Josephat Hitimana, also accused of genocide, fled at the beginning of the week after being summoned by a Gacaca court.
Some believe that Hitimana has left for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where he has family.
He was to appear before the gacaca court of the Nyamabuye sector, Muhanga district.
Several clergymen were convicted by Rwandan justice for their role in the 1994 genocide.
