My sources give Gen. Bertram's original sentence as ten years imprisonment -- see:

Belgian military court Brussels
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=136978

Other than the already-mentioned Belgian trials, I found these other three in my notes.

Bisbort, Ernst -- member, German Secret Field Police (Geheime Feldpolizei) {arrested and put on trial by a Belgian court on war crimes charges; convicted and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment; sentence annulled 15 Feb 1951 by a Belgian military appeals court (NYT 16 Feb 1951:9:2).}

Lippert, Julius (1895-30.6.1956) -- Mayor of Berlin; commandant of Arlon, Belgium 1940 (arrested 1945; put on trial by a Belgian court; convicted and sentenced to 7 years forced labor 1952; deported to Germany 1952; classified as a Nazi activist by a denazification court; died at Bad Schwalbach 30 Jun 1956 (Encyclopedia of the Third Reich pps. 548-9).}

Spitznagel, Otto -- member, German Secret Field Police (Geheime Feldpolizei) {arrested and put on trial by a Belgian court for war crimes; convicted and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment; sentence annulled by a Belgian military appeals court 15 Feb 1951 (NYT 16 Feb 1951:9:2).}
