  The Hague - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hague is the seat of government, but, somewhat anomalously, not the capital of the Netherlands, a role set aside by the Dutch constitution for Amsterdam.
The Hague is the home of the "Eerste Kamer" (literally "First Chamber") or "Senaat" and the "Tweede Kamer" (literally "Second Chamber"), respectively the upper and lower houses forming the "Staten Generaal" (literally the "Estates-General").
The nearest airport to The Hague is Rotterdam Airport.

 Hague Convention Abduction Issues
In addition, the reputation of the Hague Convention is such that, when an abducting or retaining parent learns that a Hague application has been or will be filed, he or she may return the child voluntarily and no further civil action will be taken.
The majority of Hague cases still, however, require the left behind parent to retain an attorney in the country where the child is located and petition the court for return.
With the Hague Convention, the emphasis is on the swift return of a child to his or her place of habitual residence where the custody dispute can then be resolved, if necessary, in the courts of that jurisdiction.

 The Hague Showdown - by Nebojsa Malic
Reporters in The Hague, who are without exception partial to the Tribunal and scornful of Milosevic, described his opening statement as "defiant" but pointless, as he supposedly did not address the actual charges.
The crux of the indictment against him is a conspiracy theory conjured by a former FBI agent and garnished with a vulgar, warmed-over canard theory first concocted over 100 years ago ("Greater Serbia"), which has little or nothing to do with the truth, and even less with justice.
It does, however, mean opposing the ongoing travesty in The Hague that claims the mantle of international justice while in fact it represents the exact opposite.

The fundamental illegality and outright criminality of The Hague is obvious even if one insists on buying into the rest of the US story on Milosevic.
