From the quote in the link RoleyPoley provides, Rausis has only admitted to cheating in that one game during which he was caught. Perhaps this is the position he'll stick to, as there's only circumstantial evidence to suggest he was doing this regularly or consistently. Perhaps also he's wary that an apology might be construed as an admission of guilt above and beyond this one incident.

A bit disappointing that he doesn't seem to show any remorse or anything. Just 'Oh well, I'll stop playing chess. Don't do what I did, kids.'.

Igor Rausis was caught using a phone at a tournament in Strasbourg and has admitted to cheating. Given the recent stories, and the reaction from a lot of professional players about the increase in his rating, i guess this isnt too unexpected.

Yes, his rating progress was already more than suspicious. If he had stopped at 2550 no-one would have noticed, but he just got too greedy.
