Should a leader be above the law ?

bbItaly’s highest court has overturned a law granting Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi immunity from prosecution while in office.

Obviously we can’t get into Italian law, but what of the principle?

Is there a danger that if a leader can be prosecuted, the law could become political, and court cases may undermine the functioning of government?

 Or is it right that everyone, including the person at the top, should face the law?
