Section IX : On the end of hostilities - Art. 116.
    Art. 116. Peace. Acts of hostility must cease upon the signing of the treaty of peace.
    Notice of the end of the war shall be communicated by each government to the commander of its naval forces with as little delay as possible.
    When hostile acts have been committed after the signing of the treaty of peace, the former status must, as far as possible, be restored.
    When they have been committed after the official notification of the treaty of peace, they entail the payment of an indemnity and the punishment of the guilty.
