Puerto Rico's indicted governor says he recognizes he has made mistakes during his nearly concluded four-year term but that he always strived to serve Puerto Rico.
Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila makes the comments on a four-minute video posted Sunday on the social networking site Facebook. The outgoing governor says "although I committed errors, like all human beings, I always did what I understood to be correct and right." He did not specify his mistakes.
Acevedo was ousted in November elections by a challenger who pledged to fight crime and spur the island's ailing economy, which is in it's third year of recession.
He faces a corruption trial in February for alleged campaign finance violations, but denies any wrongdoing.
