Equality and accountability before the law for all citizens is very important. It enables our society to function better and prevents and punishes abuses of power. If government ministers in particular are able to get away with breaking the law, then that sets a dangerous precedent for future governments and other powerful positions. Everyone should have take responsibility if they break the law, and that includes members of government.
