Viganò: Fired...and Rehired

Fr. Z (Fr. Z's Blog) informs us that Viganò, sacked for the poor handling of Francis' "booklet" roll-out, has been rehired to a sort of second in command in the very same office where he erred.

From Fr. Z's blog post:

Not content with writing just a resignation letter Viganò extends the agony with a missive of some 350 words including a review of human history, a summary of the pontificate, excerpts from Bible, a pie recipe, and a wedding toast. Seriously, all he needed was, “Your Holiness, with the present letter I submit my resignation. Thank you.” But, no.

Not content with writing just “Resignation accepted”, His Holiness – who wouldn’t have been blamed for falling asleep as he read the above-mentioned – responded with 180+ of his own, in which, incredibly, he REHIRED Viganò as “Assessore” – a kind of second in command – of the same office he screwed up to the global embarrassment of the Holy See. Apparently Francis wants Viganò around so he can still “give his human and professional contribution to the new Prefect”.

@Atanasio de Trento Canon 1391 says it is possible that someone be punished (puniri potest). You say that he must be punished.
