Axis, a garment manufacturer, was de-listed from Bursa Malaysia in 2011.
In a statement, the SC claimed that the director communicated material non-public information to the other two who share his surname (the statement did not disclose their relationship to each other).
The SC is seeking from the defendants a disgorgement of three times the profits made by the two.
The commission is also claiming a civil penalty of RM1mil from each of the three defendants and an order that the defendants be barred from being a director of any public-listed company for a period of five years.
