Fujimori had not previously apologized, asserting even during his sentencing hearing that he was innocent.Fujimori, who has been diagnosed with arrhythmia and tongue cancer, also thanked President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski for pardoning him and sparing him from serving another 14 years in prison.The president said Fujimori was being let go for humanitarian reasons, but many believe it was part of a backroom deal struck to protect Kuczynski from impeachment on corruption charges.A U.N. official said Tuesday that Peru's president should not have acted alone in granting the pardon.
