Kiwi Leeza Ormsby ‘happy’ to get the hell out of Kerobokan

Leeza Ormsby, the kiwi inmate who was sentenced to 10 months in Bali prison over a half-smoked joint has already been released from Kerobokan Prison, sources say.

After getting a special farewell from her prison friends and kissing her inmate knitting group goodbye, Ormsby, 38, was escorted out by two immigration officers and was spotted carrying her own luggage, reported the AAP.

Press followed her to the car until she whipped out her hard-earned bahasa: “Saya may tutup pintu” (I want to close the door).

She reportedly said she felt “Happy!” when asked about her feelings at check out time.

Prison Governor Sudjonggo told Ormsby “not to come back here” when she left, according to the AAP. 

Ormsby was arrested back in February when she stumbled into a police raid at her friend’s holiday Bali villa with a half-smoked joint in her purse. She was sentenced to 10 months in prison as a drug user (a label with supposedly more lenient treatment) and got off a month early for good behavior. Other drugs including MDMA and hashish had allegedly been found on the villa’s premises but Ormsby and no one else for that matter were reportedly charged for those drugs. 

This is probably the “Happy” dance Ormsby did after getting out, when no one was looking:
