Denunciation
    Article 99 -- Denunciation

    1. In case a High Contracting Party should denounce this Protocol, the denunciation shall only take effect one year after receipt of the instrument of denunciation. If, however, on the expiry of that year the denouncing Party is engaged in one of the situations referred to in Article 1, the
    denunciation shall not take effect before the end of the armed conflict or occupation and not, in
    any case, before operations connected with the final release, repatriation or re-establishment of
    the persons protected by the Conventions or this Protocol have been terminated.

    2. The denunciation shall be notified in writing to the depositary, which shall transmit it to all the
    High Contracting Parties.

    3. The denunciation shall have effect only in respect of the denouncing Party.

    4. Any denunciation under paragraph 1 shall not affect the obligations already incurred, by reason of the armed conflict, under this Protocol by such denouncing Party in respect of any act committed before this denunciation becomes effective.
