He had been convicted of Genocide crimes and subsequently sentenced to thirty years.
After being apprehended in Ruhango Hakizimana was taken back to the prison so as to make another dossier, regarding the crime of escaping prison.
An inmate who escapes the prison, and gets caught is taken to court and gets an additional sentence of 6 months according to the law.
Hakizimana is now back in prison to originally finish his sentence on top of another six months for trying to escape.
