Two journalists working for the BiH private regional channel N1TV were victims of hate speech. Reporter Adisa Imamović and local program editor and manager Amir Zukić were targeted by messages on the web portal Bosnjaci.net following the publication on 23 June 2017 of a story on the Iftar in Konjevic Polje, a small town in the Eastern part of BiH. According to the Western Balkan’s Regional Platform for Advocating Media Freedom and Journalists’ Safety, Bosnjaci called through its Facebook page for violence against N1 workers, and spread hate speech on a national and religious basis. N1 filed a complaint against the portal.
