    Smile treachery

    What do we do with treachery? I mean, for example: we fulfill a plan or carry out an order. What verb is used with treachery?

    I am not a teacher, but I think that:

    "They completed/commited/perpetraded/executed their shamefull treachery without remorse" could be a posible.

    Best Regards.

    Hi,
    I think commit is the commonest. A small correction: perpetrate.
    Cheers
