Can't shred encrypted Writer file

I tried to use the SHRED command in Linux to destroy an encrypted Writer file, but I got this message:

 Document file 'xxx.odt' is locked for editing by:
 Unknown User
 Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing.

The file seems to have set itself for read-only; I don't remember doing it.

How do I get rid of the read-only restriction so I can shred the file?
