Managed to open it today, it unlock mysteriously by itself.
so while it was open I cut off most of the plastic locking pin with a pair of side cutters, so it only engages about 3mm now.

this will make it easy to pry open in the future if necessary.

as soon as i locked the car again it jamed in the locked position.
I suspect some lubricant on the locking pin that goes in and out would help.
Currently in jack daniels's garage:
2005 Grand Espace 2.0T auto and a couple of others
