'urmang'a' is perfect for "high treason". maj.

However, this use of <pum> is not so good. <pum> is just "accuse", not
"accuse of something". The object is clearly the person accused, and there
is really no place for the reason of the accusation. This might be the place
for <-mo'>:

'urmang'a'lIjmo' qapum.
