Belgian examining magistrate and judge known for his role in the Marc Dutroux case.

Connerotte entered bar association of Tournai in 1979. He was responsible for the investigation into the assassination of André Cools in 1994.

On 14 October 1996 Connerotte was removed from the investigation of Dutroux by the Court. His impartiality was impaired because he had attended a fund-raising dinner for the families of the victims of Marc Dutroux. There he had received a pen and a bowl of spaghetti as a gift. The affair became known as the "spaghetti affair" in Belgium. His removal from the case sparked national outrage in Belgium. He was considered a good judge as his decisions had led to the rescue of two of Dutroux's victims. Over 300,000 people protested his removal and other errors in the investigation during the White March in October 1996 in Brussels.
