The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) stated on Tuesday that Sredojevic had requested permission to handle a "private situation in South Africa."
Micho, as he's affectionately known, was before the New Brighton Magistrate Court in Gqeberha, where he was found guilty of rape.
He was then sentenced to three years in prison, which was later suspended for a period of five years.
Rape allegations against Sredojevic first appeared in December 2020, at the COSAFA Cup competition in Gqeberha.
At the time, a 39-year-old woman accused Sredojevic of making obscene gestures on her twice while she was on the job.
The main incident occurred when the lady delivered espresso to Sredojevic and his colleagues — the lady questioned whether the Serbian wanted his espresso with sugar.
Sredojevic's alleged reaction was that he needed 'one more kind of sugar,' while pointing to the casualty's reproductive organs.
Sredojevic was found and reported to the woman's employers, who censured him and warned him not to repeat the experience.
In any event, Sredojevic allegedly ignored the warning and unlawfully contacted a similar lady shortly afterwards.
Sredojevic was then apprehended and released on R10,000 bail after appearing before the Regional Magistrate Court in Gqeberha.
Milutin Sredojevic, the Uganda Cranes' coach, asked permission from FUFA to handle a private situation in South Africa.
We received word this evening that the private matter had been closed until further notice.
The mentor will resume to his duties as soon as possible.
