I think being contrite and remorse is never enough to be forgiven. One must atone. If the one you maliciously deprived can’t be atoned to, you must do good for others as an atonement for the malicious deed.
Some people do sincerely believe that they are remorse and contrite, but humans will be humans. We believe in our own lies. Hence atonement is a must.
