DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Barrows, the provider of hotel investment and advisory services for hotels in the Middle East, is very positive for the global hotel industry and sees huge opportunities for investors and developers.

Last year, the company noticed lower sales due to restrictions imposed by travel restrictions and declining demand for global hotel bookings. The turnover decline in hotel room sales was a fact, but the differences with the advisory branch of the company were very large. Never has the company managed to achieve such significant growth.

Many Hotels across the globe had massive problems and hired Barrows as their regular advisory partner. Today, the development of new hotels and the sales of hotel rooms are stronger than ever before. Investors are massively signing up for new hotel projects and they really come from all over the world.

The company expects strong growth in the hotel industry for the last quarter of this year and for 2022. “The economies are slowly closing, and world trade is returning back strongly,” said Barrows Hotel Enterprises Chairman – Erwin Jager. The market has been recovering for a few months now and hotels are opening their doors to the public again, which is giving a huge boost to employment.

Barrows Hotel Enterprises internationally manages more than 10,000 hotel rooms in more than 10 countries. The company started in 2008 as a real estate investor in the residential market in Dubai. Since 2012, Barrows has changed its strategy and the company is fully focused on the fast-growing hotel industry in the Middle East and Africa.

Open Society Names Natalie Samarasinghe as Global Director for Advocacy

New York, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Open Society Foundations today named Natalie Samarasinghe as their first global director of advocacy, as part of their drive to speak with a powerful  international voice for justice, equity, and free expression.

Samarasinghe joins Open Society with more than 15 years of advocacy and management experience, most recently as CEO of the United Nations Association-UK. She will assume her new role on January 18, 2022.

“Natalie is a respected thought leader on the subjects of human rights, multilateralism, and civil society. She is well-positioned to build a powerful global advocacy department that magnifies our impact,” said Mark Malloch-Brown, president of Open Society Foundations.

Samarasinghe transformed the United Nations Association-UK into a global innovator and campaigner on UN issues with over 120 branches and 1,000 civil society partners worldwide. There, she advised NGOs and governments on advocacy strategies, and was one of the co-founders of both the 1 for 7 Billion campaign for transparency in international appointments, and the Together First movement for inclusive global governance. Samarasinghe also worked for the United Nations in the office of the President of General Assembly, and as chief of strategy for the organization’s 75th anniversary initiative.

Samarasinghe has also advised governments on UN policy, and supported NGOs such as the Sri Lanka Campaign and Brazilian Igarapé Institute.

“I look forward to helping lead the Foundations’ advocacy priorities and being part of an impressive legacy that continues to shape laws, policies, practices, and attitudes in support of open society,” said Samarasinghe.

Revising prosecutor law can strengthen system, institution: legislator

House of Representatives member Arteria Dahlan has said that revisions to Law No. 16 of 2004 concerning the Prosecutor’s Office of Indonesia can optimize the prosecution system and institution in the country.

“Indonesia must make regulatory improvements. Through the revision of the prosecutor’s office law, it is expected that the strengthening of this system and institutions can be very optimal,” Dahlan remarked in a podcast streamed on the Indonesian Prosecutor’s Office YouTube channel here on Wednesday.

Thus, the revisions will firmly declare the authority of the Indonesian Prosecutor’s Office, such as the principle of dominus litis, where a case prosecutor can realize the ideals of just law enforcement in the country, he said.

When prosecutors’ authority is increased, there will be other positive impacts. One of them is the obligation for the Prosecutor’s Office to bring forth great prosecutors, he pointed out.

According to Dahlan, a great prosecutor performs the duty and function of ensuring fair law enforcement for the people of Indonesia, on behalf of the Republic of Indonesia.

“If the authority has been added, great prosecutors must also exist. Not only do they have the capacity and competence, but they know they are Indonesian prosecutors who serve for good,” he said.

To emerge as a great prosecutor, maximum coaching and career path clarity are necessary, Dahlan pointed out.

The policies of mutation, demotion, and shift to lower position can be realized if the regulatory system in the prosecutor law is improved, he added.

He also said that the revision of the prosecutor law is one of the right solutions for improving legal development in Indonesia.

Revisions to the prosecutor’s office law are still in process under the House’s initiative, which is considering suggestions from several related parties, such as the Prosecutor’s Office Commission, he added.

In general, the revision will improve the duties and authority of the Prosecutor’s Office in enforcing justice in Indonesia, he remarked.
