Austria's ex-vice chancellor Strache admits to complicity in scandal

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Austria's former vice chancellor and leader of the far-right Freedom Party (FPO) said on Friday (May 24) that his remarks in a secretly filmed video which brought down the government were "stupid and completely unacceptable." In a video message released on Heinz-Christian Strache's Facebook page, the former FPO leader said, ''I am embarrassed about my behavior, my remarks and my appearance in this private holiday situation.'' Strache was shown in the two-year-old video published last week meeting a woman posing as a Russian oligarch's niece apparently offering to funnel state contracts toward a company in exchange for political and financial support.

He announced his resignation days later.

In his video message on Friday, Strache said the video filmed "in a private holiday situation" on the Spanish island of Ibiza was an "attack on our country's political leadership, freedom and democracy."
