That's a doozy. I'll choose A.

Advised, told, was-- all simple past tense.

"Advised of" is more idiomatic here, I think, than "Advised that"

I vote for B.

In A the word "was" should've been used before "told".

these two are correct:
...was adviced..., was told ... and was interrogated
...was adviced...,told..., and interrogated

this is wrong:
...was adviced..., told ... and was interrogated
