Living up to its “Little Arab” nickname, Puncak also hosts refugee camps run by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Ministry recorded 2,300 illegal immigrants in Puncak last year, 1,600 of them being accommodated in the Bogor regency. Mostly Iraqis and Afghans, the illegal immigrants have been temporarily resettled there after they were stranded on their way to Australia. While awaiting their relocation to a third country, they enjoy the freedom of mingling with locals, and some find the love of their lives.
