It is likely the end of the loop of this part on the door has broken in the lock and stuck in the on position. If you cannot move the switch to the open position and remove the broken part it will be necessary to replace this part and the door lock.

It sounds like the door lock is faulty or stuck closed because this catch is broken. If the 'loop' on this part is broken then the lock is in the closed position. Replace this part and carefully use a small screwdriver to prise the broken 'bar' from the latch plate out of the lock to leave the catch in the open position.
If you cannot do this with out damaging the lock replace the lock as well.

The door lock is likely to be in the closed position holding the broken bar from the old latch. As the door opens normally the cross bar at the end of the loop on the catch is pulled out of the lock leaving the 'claw' in the open position. carefully try to open the claw using a small screwdriver. If you cannot do this you will need to replace the lock.
