Uson said explains that the transaction was clean and done in good faith, she said that it was BUCOR officials who requested their performance and they accepted it.Totoo po na noong late 2012 or early 2013 kami po ay nagperform sa bilibid. Marami pong nag perform doon sa event na yun. Ito po ay pormal na concert na dumaan po sa tamang proseso. Marami pong mga artista na nagsho-show dun at nagbibigay pag-asa sa mga bilanggo. Sa tingin ko naman po walang masama kung ito ay PORMAL na nanggaling sa opisyal ng BUCOR. Ang nakakapagtaka lang ay bakit kami lang ang idinidiin at binibigyan ng kulay. Una sa lahat, hindi ko po kinahihiya iyon bakit? Tulad nga ng aking sinabi, walang masama kung ito ay dumaan sa tamang paraan. And for argument's sake, kung bawal pala iyon hindi dapat ang mga Artista o Entertainer ang sisihin dapat ang pamunuan ng BUCOR at dating SEC DE LIMA dahil sila ang nag issue ng kaukulang permit upang makapag concert sa loob.
According to BUCOR officials, the department allows a number of recreational activities such as concerts and celebrity performances inside the Bilibid to rehabilitate the inmates.
