He says it's true that it is my fault

Woman: My neighbor. You know Mr. Smith who lives next door?

Man: Oh, the man who fell down the stairs the other day?

Woman: Yeah.

Man: The poor guy who broke his leg and walks like this? How can he take you to court? He can’t even walk properly.

Woman: That’s the whole point. That’s why he’s taking me to court, because he broke his leg.

Man: Oh, I don’t get it. It’s not your fault that he broke his leg.

Woman: He claims, he says it’s true that it is my fault.

Man: Oh, how come?

Woman: Because he fell down the stairs, and the stairs belong to the workshop and the workshop belongs to me.

… he says it’s true that it is my fault.

What does “it’s true” mean in this sentence?

It’s true that it’s my fault means: That it is my fault is true.
Or, as Torsten says, It’s a fact that it is my fault.
