In recognition of the extreme efforts that he went to to get the story, Eroro won a local journalism award:
In his subsequent reporting for the Post-Courier newspaper, Mr Eroro exposed the cross-border movements of Free West Papua militants from Indonesia into Papua New Guinea. The judges of News Ltd's Scoop of the Year prize said the reports had led to a major police operation to tighten the borders.
"The impact of Simon's scoop was enormous; the police commissioner launched a major operation to tighten the borders and close down the [Free West Papua] refugee camps," the judges said.
