Belinda Geary For The Daily Mail Australia, writes:
A man who has been to five different courts and racked up a $100,000 legal bill over a $250 speeding fine said that after a four year battle he still won't rest until 'justice' is served.
Mustafa Al Shakarji, from Townsville, Queensland was pulled over and fined $250 for speeding in March 2012 after a police radar allegedly detected him doing 28 kilometres over the speed limit.
But the pharmacist, who immigrated to Australia from Iraq in 2002, insists that he was not speeding and is determined to continue to fight until the courts give him justice.
Now, after going through five different courts and losing a final appeal the determined driver said he will be the first person to take a speeding fine all the way to Australia's High Court.
Everyone one of us is counting on one of two things when we face our Maker. We will either be seeking justice or mercy. Those who insist on justice will receive God's justice, which requires a just punishment for every transgression. However, those who repent and seek mercy will receive God's mercy, which promises all the joys and rewards of heaven.
What most people want, what they insist on as a matter of principle, is justice. And just like Mr. Shakarii, they are determined to take their case all the way to the highest court to get it. If you are one of those who insist on justice, be forewarned. It will be far more costly than you imagined.
"He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit" (Titus 3:5).
"But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners" (Matthew 9:13).
