One of the Members of Parliament (MP) for Aljunied Group Representation Constituency (GRC) – the only GRC an opposition party presently holds in Singapore – Singh noted that no ruling party MPs have filed questions on the corruption scandal(,) which gripped headlines when news broke last week that the government-linked company Keppel Corporation’s offshore and marine unit must pay a whopping US$422m fine to settle corruption charges.

Is a comma, as shown within brackets, required after 'scandal'?

Thanks.

Yes. The "which" phrase doesn't change the meaning of what comes before it.
